University of Hawaii journalism professor Brett Oppegaard joins Pod Squad host Chad Blair this week. Oppegaard also writes the Reader Rep column that appears Mondays in Civil Beat.

In this broad ranging discussion, the two journalists pontificate on everything from nasty commenters to the decline of the news business and how readers can help support the kind of journalism they want.
