What Do Fashion Reporting And Political Journalism Have In Common? More Than You Think

In this edition of Update One, hosted by Broadcast Committee member Jennifer Strong, we explore the glamorous world of fashion reporting. As New York City wraps up Fashion Week, we meet two journalists helping shape the future of this beat. After 35 years of reporting for NPR News, Jacki Lyden's latest project is a podcast about the art, culture and business of fashion. We also meet up with Culture Critic Cintra Wilson. She has been called a modern day Dorothy Parker, and one of the most influential women in New York fashion. She argues the beats of fashion and political reporting have more in common than we think.
