Pendant 20 minutes à la radio et en podcast, L'atelier des médias se penche sur le désenchantement des journalistes français et plus spécifiquement celles et ceux qui finissent par quitter ce métier-passion dont ils avaient souvent tant rêvé. En France, il y a de moins en moins de détenteurs de la carte de presse. -10 % en une dizaine d'années. On comptait 34 182 journalistes encartés en 2020. Ils étaient 3 000 de plus en 2009. La durée moyenne d'une carrière de journaliste est de quinze ans. Aussi, l'enquête menée par le sociologue des médias Jean-Marie Charon, rattaché à l'école des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS), à Paris, et par Adénora Pigeolat, est riche d'enseignements. Tous deux viennent de publier Hier journalistes (Entremises, 2021). Jean-Marie Charon participait aux Assises internationales du journalisme, fin septembre à Tours. Au micro de L'atelier des médias, il explique comment son enquête a démarré, après des échanges sur Twitter. Il détaille les trois profils types de journalistes qui quittent la profession : les jeunes de moins de 35 ans ; les quarantenaires, principalement des femmes ; les plus de 50 ans. Il y a une conjonction de plusieurs facteurs : la précarité, les implications sur la qualité de vie, le mauvais management qui tourne parfois au harcèlement. Mondoblog audio vient en écho à la journée mondiale de l'alimentation, le 16 octobre. La Mondoblogueuse Clara Delcroix, de la génération Z – comprenez qu'elle est née entre 1995 et 2010 –, nous propose une plongée dans les habitudes alimentaires des jeunes de son âge.

During the early days of WWII, the Route 66 community of Miami welcomed over 2000 British Cadets as part of a training program to prepare pilots for combat over their homeland of England. While most of these young cadets returned home to intense fighting and a country already ravaged by war, there were a few that never made it back home to their native soil. They were tragically killed while training in the states and have been forever laid to rest along Route 66 in the community of Miami, Oklahoma. Laying these young men to rest on foreign soil attracted the attention of a local, Francis Mae Hill, who would over the next 40 years provide both flowers and prayers for these young men. Mrs. Hill knew the family members would not be able to visit their loved ones, so she voluntarily tended to their graves and promised family members back home that they would not be forgotten. She often considered the young men her boys, and her last wish was to be buried alongside her boys. King George VI would later award Mrs. Hill The King's Award for Service. Join host Anthony Arno as he talks with Nancy Bro, office manager at the GAR Cemetery in Miami, OK, about the life of these cadets and other notables buried in Miami.
