This week’s convo is with Chabeli Carrazana, the economy reporter at the 19th News. She’s worked at both the Miami Herald and Orlando Sentinel, and you may have seen her asking Jen Psaki questions in the White House Briefing Room (casual!). We talk about how she got into journalism (6:00), what it was like to cover the Parkland school shooting and 2018 FIU bridge collapse (13:30), allowing yourself to be human as a journalist (18:00), covering NASA and the space industry (23:20), and writing publicly about grief (35:10).
