Pull Quotes Podcast
With legalization around the corner, news outlets are finally seeing green. Ben Waldman talks about the growing ‘weed beat.’
Plus, two journalists discuss covering the cannabis sector—and whether you need to use weed to report on it.
Laura chats with Amanda Siebert, cannabis editor at The Georgia Straight and Jay Rosenthal, co-founder of the Business of Cannabis.
(We are so sorry for the puns.)
Ben Waldman’s feature story, “What’s Black and White and Green all Over?” will appear in the upcoming edition of the Ryerson Review of Journalism.

Pull Quotes is produced and hosted by Laura Howells, Jacob McNair and Emily Pardo.
