Shenoy : I was in grade school when my mom was in a car accident, and I had to quickly leave a note for my dad to tell him we went to the hospital. I wrote one sentence, and later he said how grateful he was — he said it told him exactly what he needed to know, in the order he needed to know it. I was hooked. In college, I studied abroad and traveled alone, talking to strangers in hostels and writing it all down. Shenoy : Right out of college, I ed The Chicago Reporter , a race and poverty-focused monthly magazine supported by civil rights leaders and people like Obama when he was a state senator.

I broke a story that got a lot of national attention and was hired as a reporter. I earned my graduate degree at Northwestern, and, while going to school full time to complete that degree, I also ed the Associated Press in Chicago. There, at all hours of the day and night, I covered big stories like the murders of Jennifer Hudson's family, the arrest of Governor Rod Blagojevich, and Obama's election.

Coming up in Illinois at the same time as Obama, in a way, has given me some interesting perspective. Shenoy : Early on I spent a year investigating police shootings in Chicago. Later, when I was working for a suburban newspaper, I was covering a city hall meeting when I met a woman who told me three of her dogs had died after digging in her yard. The EPA ended up ordering another massive cleanup. I ended up covering things like that horrible winter we called Snowmageddon. There was also the long Market Basket strike that got a lot of national attention.

I later started a podcast called Otherhood, about identity and the kids of immigrants, and moved to the radio program The World, which is also at GBH. For one episode, I embedded at Cambridge Rindge and Latin and was able to capture the really remarkable way students and staff were grappling with issues of race.

You have a strong interest in human rights. How do you feed that interest in addition to reporting on the topic? Shenoy : During the Trump administration , it became apparent that human rights were going to be a huge point of conflict, so we decided to focus all of my attention there. I went to the Canadian border to document people walking through the snow for hours to flee the US. In , I traveled from Virginia to Brazil and Ghana to document how the first enslaved Africans were brought to the English colonies, and how that history plays a role in the debates we have today.

Shenoy : In the wake of George Floyd's death there was a lot of conflict and upheaval in public radio newsrooms over coverage. I was looking for a place that was taking steps to meet those challenges. But during many conversations with people in all types of roles at WBUR, I became convinced that leadership shared my concerns and my goals and would support me as a new type of host who speaks to a diverse listenership that wants to engage directly with the biggest issues facing us today.

How did your upbringing shape who you are as a journalist? They took me back to India a lot, and I kind of ended up not fitting in anywhere. I felt like an outsider and observer everywhere. Writing became a way to understand the people around me. Shenoy : This answer is going to reveal how nerdy I am: I listen to sci-fi audiobooks checked out from the library while walking my dog, Samara, around the Charles River.

What's your media diet? What are you reading, watching, listening to right now? Shenoy : Is this a trick question? Close close Donate. Close Close.
