We chat with Ithaca Voice Managing Editor Jolene Almendarez as she plans to depart Ithaca for her hometown of San Antonio, Texas. What are the challenges of running a local news non-profit organization? What's frustrating about covering City Hall? Where are the best tacos in Ithaca? And somehow, as always, the conversation turns to housing.
Note: This episode was recorded July 4, 2018. On August 20, 2018 Jolene announced her resignation from The Heron.
