Lisa Desjardins of PBS NewsHour and Ayesha Rascoe of NPR News are outstanding examples of the public media journalists we rely on for national coverage of Congress, the White House, and political issues — nationwide and on a global scale. On Monday, May 17, 2021, we were very fortunate that Lisa and Ayesha made time just for us, sharing their personal perspectives and insights about what it’s been like as working reporters in our nation’s capital during the COVID crisis, a civil rights reckoning, and a contentious — even violent — election cycle. Watch the recording of the program below.
