Episode 120: Journalist Katie Engelhart on her book “The Inevitable: Dispatches on the right to die.”

Katie’s story “What Happened in Room 10?” won a George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting in 2021. It is the product of a months-long investigation into the first COVID outbreak in an American nursing home — and, more broadly, the rise of the for-profit nursing home industry.


Previously, she worked as a documentary film correspondent and producer at NBC News. She made short documentaries from across the United States and abroad. And she appeared on The Today Show, NBC Nightly News and MSNBC.


Before that, she was as a foreign correspondent for VICE News, based in London, and Europe reporter for Maclean’s, Canada’s largest news magazine. She won a Canada National Magazine Award for her coverage of Ukraine’s Euromaidan revolution. 


Katie is a graduate student of History and Philosophy at Oxford University, and worked as a researcher for the historian Timothy Garton Ash.
