Running of the Interns 2018

There is no Workday Like this Workday (2018), an essay for Compost.

Since electronic devices are banned within the courtroom, it’s up to the Media Network Interns—often undergraduate journalism majors at nearby universities—to swiftly deliver highly anticipated news as the critical race leg between the courthouse and the public. This “Running of the Interns” occurs every year and when I was invited to reflect on the phenomenon for the forthcoming volume of Compost, an arts & culture publication out of Buenos Aires, I adopted the tone of a pre-workout pep talk text directed to the interns themselves. A transcription from Good Morning America, where the hosts staged their own “Running” introduces the piece.
