In this week’s 4MR podcast I do another special report for our “Beyond J-School” series, this time an in-depth discussion with NYU’s Jay Rosen, who has been taking a new approach to journalism education. Rosen told me more about his Studio20 program, using an arts metaphor, and its work in helping to launch the new hyper-local site for the East Village in conjunction with the New York Times.
