Hurricanes and Riots

August 31, 2017

In a recent Facebook post former Dispatch/Argus reporter, Brian Krans, wrote: “To any journalist friends who are covering Hurricane Harvey: one, remember your stay in a hotel room makes one less for evacuees. Two, go into counseling immediately after your assignment is done. You're going to see things you wouldn't normally expect and then go home to people acting like everything is normal. The juxtaposition can be jarring.  I learned the latter the hard way covering Katrina from the ground. It changed me forever.” Brian talks candidly about his experience covering Katrina and his more recent experience covering the violent protests in Berkley. We also talk to Brian about the state of journalism in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Brian, who left the Dispatch/Argus in 2009, is currently working on a Master’s Degree in Journalism at the University of California, Berkley. The veteran reporter also hosts The Rock Town Podcast
