7: Jolene Almendarez — “Way More Stories Than You Can Ever Do”

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.
