8. Inside The Mind Of An Environmental Reporter

This episode I have a conversation with Lisa Sorg who is an Environmental Reporter for N.C. Policy Watch. She covers environmental issues, including social justice, pollution, climate change and energy policy. Lisa has been a journalist for 22 years, working at magazines, daily newspapers, digital media outlets and alternative newsweeklies. We talk about her experience as an environmental reporter, her process for investigating environmental issues, push back from industries, as well as issues she’s covered such as SuperFund Sites, 1,4 Dioxane, PFAS and landfill leachate. We talk about the ups and downs of her job and ultimately why she finds her work so fulfilling.
