Reporting On A Pandemic In A Time of Grief

politics politics podcast logo

As an investigative reporter for Carolina Public Press, Kate Martin has been persistently reporting on the COVID-19 pandemic in North Carolina for months.  She’s determined to uncover the answers to questions others are not asking and hold officials accountable. 

As she’s pressed on with her reporting, Martin has been grappling with personal hardship. Her father passed away in late May.

On this episode of the Politics Podcast from WUNC, Martin discusses the grind of reporting in a crisis, her father’s death, and a recent public moment when her family and profession collided.
