Postindustrial Media creates journalism and events about the innovators of postindustrial America.

We do that through:

  • Postindustrial Weekly newsletter featuring original reporting and curated news from Greater Appalachia and the Rust Belt. We hone in on five major topics: criminal justice, economic development, poverty, technology, and veterans issues;
  • Podcasts for local and niche audiences in cities and towns from St. Louis east to Baltimore, and Buffalo south to Birmingham;
  • Events that connect scholars and innovators with municipal government leaders, contractors, business owners, and developers interested in helping postindustrial communities grow and thrive;
  • In-depth reporting — through long-form storytelling, as well as audio and video documentaries — about the histories and futures of communities in transition.
