Long and deep investigations make names and awards for newsrooms.  But they don't make much money, so today's cash-poor journalism business tends to stay focused on shorter-term projects. 

Investigate West, a nonprofit doing investigative journalism work in the Northwest, just announced an Oregon-only spinoff called Underscore Media Collaboration.  It's so new it doesn't have its own website yet; it will be fully functional by summer. 

Lee van der Voo, longtime journalist, will be the managing editor and is our guest.  She explains the kind of work Underscore will undertake.
