“I thought and still do think that we are in a catastrophic historical moment.” – Bob Garfield
On the Media, 12 Months Later: Brooke and Bob on Covering Trump, November 7, 2017
It’s now a year since Election Day 2016, and a year since we gathered in our office the day after Election Day to figure out what exactly had happened. The mood was tense, and our Executive Producer Katya Rogers seized the opportunity to offer listeners some ultra transparency, documenting a moment when Brooke and Bob were at their most doubting. The result: a raw podcast extra, in which the hosts argued about what had gone down and how the show should cover the Trump administration.
Caught in a catastrophic historical moment? Yes. Yes we are.
A backdated status from my now-defunct Tumblr blog. I never did get any following on that platform.
