For the first time, the interns will be showcasing the highlights of their experience in a new way through the fall video series, the Intern Docuseries.

In the video above, Ashton Edmunds, one of ESPN’s The Undefeated Rhoden Fellows, talks about this unique program for the next generation of sports journalists from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and showcases some of his favorite projects.

The one-year fellowship, where Fellows have the opportunity to produce stories about race, sports and culture, including a bi-weekly podcast series created by the Fellows with support from ESPN Audio, is headed by The Undefeated editor-at-large and former New York Times award-winning columnist William C. Rhoden.

Jon McLeod and Taylor Garner produced the video.
