3x05 The Power of the Offline (Karolis Vyšniauskas)

Karolis works in Nanook a collective of journalists - as they describe themselves - who are interested in how Lithuanian society works and want to tell stories neglected by mainstream media. In the span of just a few years they managed to build an active and loyal base of listeners thanks to whom Nanook is in most part self-sustainable. Listen to conversation with Karolis about how to build and run a collective following rules of  integrity, what are the ways to build credibility and a devoted following among your listeners and cross the traditional definitions of what the journalists role is. 

Karolis also talks about one of the activities they do - face to face meeting during which people featured in the published stories have a chance chance to meet the listeners.  He shares how they create those offline spaces for people to not only share stories but also have an opportunity to personally interact (and how important that is in a society like Lithuanian where that type of contact between strangers is not something that happens often) - tips on everything from the technical background of how to organize such a meeting to how to you know if it worked.
