WCMJ Extra: In Conversation with Freelance Journalist Olivia Truffaut-Wong
It's an audio interview, not a podcast!
Excited to finally bring you a new Q&A format: audio!
My friend and former Bustle colleague, freelance journalist Olivia Truffaut-Wong, was kind enough to be the first to try this out with me. She’s a former Bustle entertainment editor who moved from NYC to Northern California during the pandemic and has been freelancing. In addition to Bustle, Olivia’s bylines have appeared in NBC News Think, Refinery29, The Dipp, Mental Floss, and more.
Olivia answered some questions about working in journalism in NYC vs. NorCal, going from working full-time to freelancing, job hunting during the pandemic, advocating for more diverse coverage, and more. She is also a Marvel expert and she has some great recommendations on what you should watch in the MCU.
And yes, as we joke at the end, we originally did record for a full hour, but this interview was edited for clarity and length.
