Our guest for this episode is Zing Tsjeng, the executive editor of VICE UK. Most recently, Zing ruffled a few establishment feathers with her Empires of Dirt short-form video series about British colonialism. Zing is a podcaster too, host of United Zingdom on BBC Sounds. She launched the UK edition of women’s website Broadly, while her four-book series, Forgotten Women, explored the untold stories of inspiring women. In this episode of J-Lab – a podcast brought to you by the Civic Journalism Lab at Newcastle University – Zing discusses the importance of journalists passing the microphone to under-represented communities; how reporters should handle the issue of identity; and whether we need to decolonise journalism.
