The Kodai Chronicle: A local magazine from the mountains show us why independent media is critical
In this episode, we speak to Jacob Cherian, who is part of the editorial team at 'The Kodai Chronicle' magazine. As the tagline says, it is a dispatch from the hills. I spoke to Jacob about how did this magazine come about, and if we want more people, community and environment related news, the way forward is more local media. Mass media is laden with vicious agenda setting from editorials which are influenced by the polluting industries. With a shrinking space for independent voices in the media, The Kodai Chronicle team is turning to people for funding its campaign to run the publication. Listen to this story which is leading a new way for journalism, straight from the citizens of Kodai, and if you're convinced, head to their magazine and social media profile to know more and potentially support their efforts.

3 Missing Headlines
No more 'green' or 'environment' news. This affects everyone. Yes, stories that are completely missing in the mainstream media about agriculture, economy, politicians, disasters, rights, displacement - all woven together by climate change and environmental justice. If you're a journalist, campaigner or content creator, this is very important and useful! Rising prices because crops were destroyed by a extremely severe category cyclone is a matter of concern for Indian media, and its consumers. It's a matter of concern for all Indian citizens. Vulnerable groups evicted from a land which used to be a forest, is a matter of concern for news Avinash Chanchal, a senior campaigner on climate change, and I, communication strategist on climate change, will discuss 3 such stories every week. We welcome feedback and suggestions. Find us on Twitter @ruhie and @avinashchanchal
