I am a regular commentator on Vocalo, sister-station to Chicago’s WBEZ public radio station. I provide commentary on popular news stories spanning from politics to pop culture. In addition to pitching story ideas, I have also served as a guest co-host and have produced segments for Vocalo and WBEZ, which include interviews with activists, award-winning music artists, and scholars whose work speaks to timely issues.
