Remain Curious and Authentic - with Russell Contreras
Show Notes

Week Four of Axios April brings us to a rich conversation with Axios Justice and Race Reporter Russell Contreras.  With a deep interest in history and a keen knack for writing, Russell realized early in his career that authenticity and connection to those he covers was of real value.  

While the narrative today is focused on the issue of race and justice, it's more than just a trend for Axios.  They're diving deeper and investigating how these issues define the nation -- and Russell and his colleagues are on the front lines, doing the good work to help us understand.  

Russell shares the Axios approach to reporting on issues, the book he is writing about JFK and Latinos and what it's like to unplug in the beautiful state of New Mexico.  

Listen in today to meet Russell and hear more about his background.
