Episode 269: Jodi Kantor

Nov. 8, 2017

Jodi Kantor is a New York Times investigative reporter and the author of The Obamas. “Being a reporter really robs you of self-consciousness and shyness. You realize that it’s this great gift of being able to ask crazy questions, either really personal or very probing or especially with a powerful — to walk up to Harvey Weinstein, essentially and say, ‘What have you been doing to women all these years, and for how long? All of these other people may be afraid to confront you about it, but we are not.’ That is our job.” Thanks to MailChimp and Eero for sponsoring this week's episode. @jodikantor jodikantor.net Kantor on Longform 11/12: Longform Podcast, Live in Chicago with Zoe Chace 11/15: Longform Podcast, Live in San Francisco with Kara Swisher [00:50] "Harvey Weinstein Paid Off Sexual Harassment Accusers for Decades" (Jodi Kantor, Megan Twohey • New York Times • Oct 2017) [02:10] "Promethea Unbound" (Mike Mariani • Atavist • Nov 2017) [03:30] "From Aggressive Overtures to Sexual Assault: Harvey Weinstein’s Accusers Tell Their Stories" (Ronan Farrow • New Yorker • Oct 2017) [03:45] "Harvey Weinstein’s Army of Spies" (Ronan Farrow • New Yorker • Nov 2017) [04:50] "New Accusers Expand Harvey Weinstein Sexual Assault Claims Back to ’70s" (Ellen Gabler, Megan Twohey, Jodi Kantor • New York Times • Oct 2017) [5:15] "Kevin Spacey Issues Apology to Actor After Sexual Accusation " (Michael Paulson • New York Times • April 2017) [8:00] "Bill O’Reilly Thrives at Fox News, Even as Harassment Settlements Add Up" (Emily Steel, Michael S.
