How to Listen Better

By Josh Stearns.

More than 30 tools, guides and examples to help journalists — and anyone else — be better listeners.

In my weekly newsletter, The Local Fix, I compiled a list of guides, tools, and examples of how newsrooms can listen more deeply to local communities. I’m sharing it here in case it can be useful to others, and to encourage people to add to the list.
