new title: Professor

I’m thrilled to announce that I just started the semester as a Koeppel Journalism Fellow at Wesleyan University. I’ll be teaching in their wonderful Writing Certificate Program, working with students in my course, Writing (And Arguing) About Inequality: How to Make Your Case. Send me any advice you may have — and let me know if you’re in Middletown or New Haven on a Tuesday this winter/spring!

read this: new book & mag


Read This: The Meat Racket

Ever wonder how we ended up with chickens too big-breasted to stand and hog-poop lagoons threatening whole
towns? Christopher Leonard’s fabulous The Meat Racket:The Secret Takeover of America’s Food Business is an
incisive history of how America’s meat went industrial.
Pick it up starting February 18.

Read This: The California Sunday Magazine

Great news for anyone looking for smart, innovative and powerful journalism: Doug McGray of the genre-transforming Pop Up Magazine is launching a Sunday mag for the west coast. I’m so excited to read the first issue; it should hit your tablet, phone and—in California—your local newsstand later this year.
