Letter from the Editors: Voices Of
Welcome to The Politic’s newest series, Voices Of. Voices Of seeks to inform our understanding of major news through amplifying the human perspective. Instead of interviewing high-profile figures who influence the news, we interview average people who are affected by the news.
Layperson interviews abound in conventional media, but they are often superficial and rarely complex. We try to show the difficulties and contradictions that come with being affected by forces outside our control through long-form human interviews that surpass the constraints of sound bites.
Our interviews come in a variety of formats, including text Q&As, audio content, and videos.
We welcome you to look through our collection of interviews, which may represent the Voices Of your neighbors, friends, or complete strangers. Everyone will learn something from these stories—we certainly have.
Kaley Pillinger and Lorenzo Pinasco
