We are really looking forward to having Dave Jorgenson, who runs the Washington Post's popular TikTok, appear at a Cap Times members-only event this month with opinion editor Jessie Opoien. They'll be talking about the intersection between journalism and social media, and maybe even pumpkin spice Spam.
Some of Jorgenson's first work out of college was on Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," and he brings that same comedic sensibility to his work at the Post, where he captures the zeitgeist of the day in short video posts on TikTok. The account has nearly 900,000 followers.
Jorgenson (whose Twitter handle is Washington Post TikTok Guy) will be talking with Opoien on Wednesday, April 14, 7-8 p.m. on Zoom. The event will be recorded and posted online sometime afterward, but Cap Times members will have an exclusive chance to see the discussion live and pose questions to Jorgenson.

Hope to see you there!
