This podcast, We Speak Your Language: How Bilingual Journalism Is Practiced In The American West, was presented at the University of Nevada, Reno, Undergraduate Research Symposium on April 20, 2018.

I traveled to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Austin, Texas, to talk to bilingual reporters about their reporting methods and how they perceive their work.
