As an investigative reporter for Carolina Public Press, Kate Martinhas 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.

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.
