Episode 25: Priya Sam on racism, mental health and leaving journalism

It's the last episode of Season 1 of Turning Point and it's time for me to share my own turning point. I've had so many guests ask me about my own story this season and I'm finally ready to tell it.

All of the young women of colour who have asked me for advice really inspired me to share my experiences with racism and discrimination in journalism. In speaking with them, I always try to be encouraging and supportive but it's also important to be honest and I aim to do both in this interview. I'm so grateful to my dear friend Camille Dundas, co-founder and Editor-in-Chief at, for interviewing me with compassion and empathy.

I'll add that I'm appreciative of many of the experiences I had in journalism, I wouldn't be where I am today without them. However, the industry is in need of major changes, especially when it comes to how women and people of colour are treated.
