Lindsay Boyle has been a journalist in Ghana, and she has also reported on immigration and the opiod crisis in Southeastern Connecticut. She joins Brian this week to talk about her work and her career.
Lindsay, a graduate of Ohio University, talks about her day-to-day life as a breaking news reporter for The Day. She describes the entire process of breaking news, from how she finds out about news to her reporting and writing process. Lindsay talks about how she tries to balance reporting on breaking news and reporting longer stories. She also talks about why she started writing about immigration issues and how she decompresses after writing about such heavy issues all day.
Lindsay also tells Brian about the three months she spent as a journalist in Ghana, what reporting was like there, and how that experience informs her worldview to this day.
There is also talk on Hamilton and Cleveland sports.
