Behind the articles that pop up on our news feed, there’s a reporter staying up late at night typing up a storm on their dimly lit laptop. Terry Nguyen is a reporter for The Goods at Vox, covering internet & consumer trends. Not only do her articles cover on-trend topics that fly under the radar of mainstream media, they’re also imbued with a sense of cultural understanding that fosters constructive discussion and empathy.
In today’s episode, Terry shares what it’s like to be a reporter, divulges the secret origins of her writing career, and discusses the complicated cross-section of activism, social media, and fake news.
