Sarah Kendzior is one of the best independent journalists working today. She writes mostly about the rise of authoritarianism so she’s been covering America a lot lately! She also writes a political column for the Canadian national newspaper the Globe and Mail and the US correspondent for the Dutch news outlet De Correspondent.

Previously she was an op-ed columnist for Al Jazeera English, where she wrote about exploitation, particularly in higher education, the diminishing opportunities of America’s youth, and gentrification. Her April 2013 article “The wrong kind of Caucasian” is the most popular AJE op-ed of all time.

But now her crowning career achievement is talking to CJ and me.
