On this episode, we’re joined by Tiffany Tan, a reporter for the non-profit VTDigger who covers southwest Vermont. Tiffany’s career has taken her around the globe, in the Philippines as a TV producer, in Singapore and China as a writer and editor. She’s worked in the United States in both South Dakota and Vermont.

Tiffany talked about her reporting experiences both abroad and in the United States. She explained the mission of VTDigger and why doing this kind of work was important to her. She also walked us through the process of covering stories, including a local sheriff who moved to Tennessee(!) and a criminal case that lasted more than 30 years.
