Episode 7: Trying Everything Once and the Future of Media with Jason D’Souza

April 03, 2024

What is the current state of Canadian media? How do we know what we’re meant to do without trying it first? And what do we do when the career we’re most passionate about may not exist anymore? This week, student host Emma Jean interviews Jason D’Souza, journalist, SFU Communication alum, and host of CBC’s All Points West. Listen in for Jason’s advice for making the most of an internship, what he sees as most critical in journalism today, and the delight of discovering new passions.
