George Chidi, and The Next Atlanta
I'm a storytelling activist for the Atlanta area. I write about politics, business and crime. Often all at once.

I contribute to The Intercept, host a show on Fox 5 about criminal justice reform and write a weekly column for the local website Decaturish. I believe that good journalism creates change. A critic who, in the words of Theodore Roosevelt, isn't "in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds," counts for less than those who are.  
Atlanta is an unequal city. It is the most unequal city.
