Reporters' Roundtable

One of my favorite things to do as a young journalist is to sit and listen as seasoned pros talk about -- anything. It could be a meeting on story ideas or a discussion on the best options for takeout.

Which is why a new series called Story Conference has piqued my interest. It's a Post reporters' roundtable on what's going on with politics and the people surrounding it.

I've been a fan of reporters' roundtables (and have produced a few for NPR) particularly because the people discussing these issues are, in fact, reporters (and editors). Not pundits pushing an agenda, but well-informed newspeople who can provide context and analysis of what's going on. The result -- a smart, informative discussion that uses the wisdom and knowledge of some and teaches others..
