    EPISODE 252: Wood tells us why local newspapers are worth saving

    We still greatly miss all of our live visits and long-form chats with our Baltimore Positive guests at State Fare and Faidley’s from earlier in our Season One of intelligent conversations with community leaders but we’re forging ahead with some of the coolest conversations during a hot, pandemic summer here in the Charm City.

    As Don Mohler always points out: it’s never a straight line with our guests or platform. Just two curious people seeking deeper knowledge and wisdom from wise people. We’re about to bring forward a wide variety of guests and topics as we navigate all of the aspects of life during a pandemic.

    This is the first of two segments with local reporter Pamela Wood, who was furloughed last week at The Baltimore Sun, which meant that Annapolis had one less set of veteran eyes at the State House during a pandemic. We discussed the future of newspapers and how she does her job in this first segment, which was cut short by a breaking news story on the book release of Larry Hogan. We discuss that and more in the second segment, which came as a bit of a surprise because we wrapped this one up without knowing we would reconnect.

    So don’t be left hanging after this first one!

    We have a lot more coming in Episode 253 with Pam Wood!

    Because we haven’t been able to sit down and eat a proper crab cake at Faidley’s at Lexington Market or have some chicken and waffles at State Fare in Catonsville with our guests, we have been doing one longish episode rather than our customary three shorter blocks of conversation.

    Given the current state of America in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and protests on our streets and throughout the world, we will be focusing on race and the future moving forward in many of our upcoming August episodes.

    Clearly, we voted last month. And we hope you voted, too, and are ready to vote again in November!

    We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

    We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with thought leaders as our citizens try to readjust to this pandemic during the summer at Baltimore Positive.

    Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.

    We’ll try to keep you cool.
