The Journalism Salute

The goal of this series is to put a spotlight on the people and organizations providing communities and groups with the journalism that matters to them, whether that’s information, education, photography, or many other possibilities

I want to show that these groups are real and important and that it’s really important that we know and respect who they are and what they do. This is part of a bigger project aimed at countering the cries of "fake news" and "lamestream media."

What is Dialogue Journalism? - Spaceship Media Co-Founder and CEO Eve Pearlman
Hide Details32min 57s

On this episode of The Journalism Salute, Mark is joined by Eve Pearlman, the co-founder and CEO of Spaceship Media.


In Eve’s words, Spaceship Media is a company that invites exploration for journalists and conversation participants through a recently developed form of work known as dialogue journalism. Spaceship brings people from different groups together for conversations over an extended period of time and works with media outlets to report on what comes from those conversations.


Eve explains the origin of the company and how dialogue journalism works in the spirit of reconceptualizing what journalism is. She tells what motivated her to pursue this type of journalism, how projects are conceptualized, developed, and completed, and why journalists are ideal for the role they serve within dialogue journalism. She also shares her vision for future projects and pays it forward with advice, and a journalism salute of her own.


Core quote: “What can I do with the skills I have, from where I sit, to help the greater good?”


The Journalism Salute is a podcast intended to spotlight journalism organizations doing prominent work and to counter the notion of journalists as the enemy of the people. It is hosted by Mark Simon. Please subscribe, rate, and review.
