CINCINNATI – Bringing fresh perspectives and analysis to the 2016 campaign trail, Scripps Washington Bureau today launches its latest podcast, “TrailMix 2016.”
“TrailMix 2016” is a weekly conversation about the state of this year’s political campaigns from the point of view of the generation that will define the future. Scripps political reporter Miranda Green, The Daily Beast social media editor Asawin Suebsaeng and Independent Journal politics editor Justin Green cover the week’s campaign news with insight, curiosity and a healthy dose of skepticism and profanity.
“With so many important issues facing our nation this election season, we thought it was important to create an outlet for the younger generation — the future of this country’s leadership,” said Ellen Weiss, vice president and bureau chief. “‘TrailMix’ is a thought-provoking program that takes listeners on the 2016 campaign trail without having to leave home.”
“TrailMix 2016” hosts bring diverse experience covering politics:
Miranda Green is a multimedia journalist and the lead 2016 election reporter for the Scripps-run podcast “DecodeDC” and for all Scripps digital outlets.
Asawin Suebsaeng is deputy social media editor at The Daily Beast, where he covers the intersection of politics and pop culture. Previously, he was a reporter at Mother Jones magazine and the Bangkok Post.
Justin Green is the political editor for Independent Journal and was previously online editor for the Washington Examiner.
The show is the second podcast for the Scripps Washington Bureau, which also produces “DecodeDC.” The Bureau is the Washington, D.C.–based digital and national investigative newsroom for The E.W. Scripps Company (NYSE: SSP).
“TrailMix 2016” will be released weekly on Wednesdays and is available on iOS devices via the native Podcasts app, through iTunes and on streaming services including SoundCloud.
