Our Episode Guest:
Journalist and Filmmaker Catrin Einhorn
Since joining The Times in 2007, Catrin was part of a team that examined President Obama’s troop surge in Afghanistan by telling the personal stories of one battalion’s yearlong deployment in a multimedia series called “A Year at War”
In 2016 (at the very height of a mass migration of refugees from Syria and Afghanistan) Catrin and fellow journalist Jodi Kantor wrote an important series about everyday Canadians adopting Syrian refugees, documenting the surprises, challenges and intense relationships that arose over their one-year sponsorship periods.
And in 2018 she was part of a team that received the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for exposing sexual harassment and misconduct in the American workplace.
Throughout her career, Catrin has focused on narrative-driven work in print, film and audio. Her work has also been recognized by the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards and the World Press Photo and Picture of the Year International Awards.
Today, you can follow Catrin’s award winning work at the Times as she covers the story behind our fragile and finite environment, our blue planet and the slow extinction of the Animal Kingdom.
