Maya Rao

Star Tribune reporter Maya Rao spent a month working at the Wild Bison truck stop in North Dakota for a story this summer.

In this week’s episode she explains what went into her excellent Atlantic piece about the North Dakota oil boom, discusses the importance of taking risks, and opens up about her career in the news business (including tales of corrupt New Jersey pols and the off-duty Minneapolis cop doing work at electronic dance parties)

A great chat with a true intrepid journalist, so check it out!
