That's What She Did Podcast

Oct 22, 2021

Bree Davies is a multimedia journalist and arts community advocate born and raised in Denver. Rooted in the world of Do-It-Yourself arts and music, Davies co-founded and produced several music and arts festivals and has toured the country with various bands. Parallel to a decade-long practice in arts and organizing, Davies has also cultivated a career as a reporter, writer, producer, and host- she's currently the first-ever host of daily news podcast City Cast Denver, which launched in March 2021. Today we talk about the role journalists play in telling important community stories and what happens when a lot of money gets injected into only specific places in a city.


In This Episode:

  • Why there is a disconnect between journalists and communities
  • Why communities of color and other marginalized identities often distrust the media and media outlets should do about it
  • Representation matters, and why we need to rethink our approach to storytelling and who tells certain stories in the mainstream media
  • A chat about gentrification and how it's coming to a community near you
