People (read: online commenters) ask NPR’s Code Switch team all the time: “Why do you guys make everything about race?”

Alicia Montgomery, supervising senior producer for Code Switch, sees that question and scratches her head.

“I wonder if these are the same people who read the sports section and say, ‘Why is everything in here about a game that was played?’”, she told us on The Pub.

This week on The Pub, Montgomery talks about the long-anticipated new Code Switch podcast, responds to criticisms of her unit from both the right and left, and her take on NPR’s broader efforts to sound more diverse.

Also on the show, host Adam Ragusea begs public media to stop referring to the podcasting market as the podcasting “space,” and three of public radio’s most exciting podcasters — Embedded’s Kelly McEvers, We Live Here’s Kameel Stanley and The Organist’s Andrew Leland — talk about how they made their shows stand out in an increasingly crowded space market.
