Brodner’s Person of the Day: Julio Diaz

Julio Diaz, whose amazing story on NPR’s Story Corps shows how creativity can change reality. This idea can be applied by anyone, anywhere. All we need is a bit of practice. And Mr. Diaz is a very fine teacher. (This piece is better heard than read.)



Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
