Alexis Stevens, Atlanta Journal-Constitution breaking news reporter


One recent story that has captured the city of Atlanta and for much of the entire country is the death of 22-month-old Cooper Harris and whether his father intentionally killed him by leaving him in his broiling car all day long. The first reporter on the scene that day was Alexis Stevens, a breaking news reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. In our chat, we talk about how she worked the story that day and in the days following, her stance on using anonymous sources in this specific case, and how she deals with the human emotions that surround her while she works a story.

Also, Stevens discusses her approach to interviewing families who have just suffered the death of a loved one and how she thinks this tragedy perhaps can help somebody moving forward.

Trent Rosecrans, Reds beat writer, Cincinnati Enquirer


Trent is one of my best friends and the perfect guest to begin this podcast. In our chat, we talk about working a baseball beat – and why his day is so damn long – why the Cincinnati Post was a great paper to work for even though we knew it was going to die at the end of 2007, and how he handles anonymous criticism from what could be the very vocal minority. Plus, why would he go from working at a national website to a local newspaper?

Here are some of the other topics we discussed.
