Octavio Lopez

It's a classic journalism tale: The reporter who walked into the newsroom and asked for a job. That's what Octavio Lopez, who had just immigrated to the United States from Mexico, did while working as a busboy and elevator guy.

Octavio is the current breaking news editor at Hoy, Chicago's Spanish daily, and you couldn't find a nicer man. This week’s episode features a fun chat about what it’s like to work in Mexican journalism, how bribes work in Mexican newspapers ("Mexico is doing well!") and how he transitioned from one society to another.
