Interview with Sharon Lerner, Investigative Reporter for The Intercept

The Toxic Avengers

Jan 11 2022 • 1 hr 10 mins

For this episode,

I spoke with Sharon Lerner, investigative reporter for The Intercept, whose groundbreaking work has included in-depth writing on a host of chemical-related issues including PFAS, pesticides, plastic waste, and environmental justice.

We began our conversation discussing her recent stories on systemic problems within the Environmental Protection Agency’s  Toxics office, including career managers overriding the findings of agency scientists that chemicals under review pose a health risk to the public.

We then traced the path of her career, work methods, and areas of interest, that have led to becoming perhaps the most important environmental journalist in the country.
