Rationality amidst fear?
Nathan sits down with David Forbes, editor of The Asheville Blade, for the 43rd episode of the Finding Asheville podcast. They chat about growing up in rural Northeastern North Carolina, how class impacts political participation, why he started reading the newspaper as early as the second grade, whether or not writer’s block actually exists, why he fell in love with local journalism, why Asheville should be rather than to seem, why Asheville has to tackle its lack of diversity, defacto segregation, and low wages now, the future of The Asheville Blade, and the details on union drive efforts that ultimately lead to his dismissal at the Mountain Xpress.
