This time on The Children’s Hour, we learn about a profession with the task of informing the public of the truth: Journalism. 

We will learn from journalists themselves, including two from New Mexico Press Women who let us know what journalists do, and how they are different from paid advertisers. Find out what we can look for to verify the truth of a story. 

Then we meet Maria Hinojosa, a groundbreaking, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist with a new children’s book about her life.

We’ve got a Kids Crew review from Illy of Once I Was You … Finding My Voice and Passing The Mic by Maria Hinojosa.

It’s all mixed with great music. Learn with us, on The Children’s Hour!

This episode was produced by Katie Stone and Eli Henley. Chad Scheer was our live engineer. This program was recorded at Outpost Performance Space in Albuquerque, New Mexico USA. Our thanks to Tom Guralnick at Outpost for sharing the space with The Children’s Hour Kids Crew.
