Special Message to Listeners

After 10 seasons of the award-winning GroundTruth Podcast, we’re excited about what might come next. 

But to find the best way forward, we want to hear from listeners like you: What stories do you feel are under-reported and need to be told? What questions do you have about the podcast?

Give us your feedback and ask us questions about the GroundTruth podcast, about our mission and our vision and our service programs in the field Report for America and more newly launched Report for the World. Your questions might be featured on a special episode.

And as a special thanks to loyal listeners, we'll send some very cool GroundTruth swag to the first three listeners who leave a voice message.

Here are the instructions: 

  • Call us at (339) 365-3754 and leave the message.

  • In that voice message, share with us your feedback about the show: What seasons, episodes or topics you liked, and what you’d like to hear more of in the future. 

  • Then, ask me questions about. It can be about the themes of different season , about particular interviews we featured, what we do here at GroundTruth – ask us anything.

  • Finally, be sure to leave a call back number so we can get in touch about sending you some swag.
