Rania Khalek is an independent journalist living in the Washington, D.C. area whose work aims to cover the plight of the underclass and marginalized. She runs the website ‘dispatches from the Underclass’, which can be found at RaniaKhalek.com, and boasts an impressive resume of features at The Nation, Al Jazeera America, and Citizen Radio, just to name a few.

In this episode of Smells Like Human Spirit, Rania makes her case for why objectivity is not possible in journalism, examines the positive aspects and limitations of independent media, and discusses the disturbing national trend of children being ‘funneled’ from public schools to the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Other topics include Nelson Mandela, the NSA, and more – enjoy!
