The Marjorie: Covering Women & The Environment in Florida

On this episode, Mark Simon is joined by Dr. Hannah Brown and Anna Hamilton of The Marjorie.

The Marjorie is a woman-owned reporting non-profit covering women and the environment in Florida.

Hannah and Anna explained their website’s name and explained what they cover, how they define “the environment,” and who their audience is. They shared examples of articles that had appeared on their website, ranging from one on an infestation of frogs through people’s toilets to multi-part pieces on the sugar cane industry, racial justice as relates to environmental issues, and a look at student concerns with politicians not taking environmental issues seriously.

Emmy Liederman, a graduating journalism student at The College of New Jersey, joined the show for our new segment in which she asked questions with answers that would serve as advice for future journalists.

Hannah and Anna then closed the interview by picking journalism organizations that they would like to salute.

Thank you for listening. Please rate and review the podcast if you can. If you have any questions or comments on the show, please send them to or tweet at @journalismsalute.
