Planet Money reporters talk about team’s approach to news

By Dru Sefton

In the first of a two-part interview on the NetNewsCheck website, Planet Money reporters Adam Davidson and Alex Blumberg talk to writer Michael Depp about what he calls the “curious, humane, approachable style” of the multimedia team covering the global economy for pubradio.

Exactly what the program is continues to evolve, Blumburg said. “We’ve been searching for the one word answer. We’re an economics reporting unit, a project. What is the core thing that we do? That’s the question we’re asking all the time.”

“Do we want to do more cohesive projects where there’s a huge digital component and there’s an audio component and they’re all working together. We’re tentatively stepping in that direction,” he added. “We want to do more of that.”
