Andrea Swensson

Several years ago, Andrea Swensson was a young college dropout in the midst of an identity crisis. Through pluck and perseverance, she's become a top music correspondent with Minnesota Public Radio's The Current, an innovative station. Andrea tells an uplifting story of her unorthodox path, proof there's more than one way to make it in journalism.

Amongst many other topics, we talk about her unexpected hiring at an alt-weekly, whether F-sharp is a thing, music criticism, depression, and the time Cee Lo Green called her gay on Twitter.

Bonus: Here's the video where the intro otter noises originated, for those of you who want to smile today.
