"Citations Needed is a good way to come to terms with the endless cycle of ‘things in the media’, to move beyond them, and to identify the major ideas that underpin reportage. These major ideas govern the way we all live our lives; understanding them allows us to identify how we can change them."

"The show can feel like you’re sitting in on a Master’s class in journalism at times, but that doesn’t mean it’s inaccessible, Nima and Adam are highly nuanced, but they also speak plainly. The topics discussed on CITATIONS NEEDED are usually troubling: war, poverty, and racism make up the bulk of the episodes, but I find the show comforting. In our era where it’s increasingly difficult to separate fact from fiction, we need people to plant our feet on solid ground and try to give us the whole truth, no matter how complicated."
