New: Please, Go On with James Hohmann

0

The Washington Post introduced the weekly interview podcast Please, Go On hosted by their opinion columnist James Hohmann who will interview one of that weeks most talked about guest columns from Post Opinions.

“We often see a guest column from Post Opinions spark national and international conversations on-air, on social media and in conversations among friends and colleagues,” said Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor for The Washington Post. “Through Please, Go On, we are inviting listeners to go deeper with the writer, pulling back the curtain on their thought process and the impact of their column.”

“In a time when we all feel we have no time, I like the idea of taking people deeper in a format that lets them listen when it’s convenient for them,” said Hohmann. “The richness of audio gives people a sense of being there, hearing from the writer firsthand and understanding the nuances of their position.”

The podcast trailer can be found here and the first episode premieres June 11 as Vice President Kamala Harris speaks with Hohmann about how to get women back into the workforce after the covid-19 pandemic.
