Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez dove head-first into a career in journalism in his hometown of San Francisco.
In this podcast, the young veteran reporter takes us through the later days of his time in City College's journalism program. After a brief stint at SF State, Joe got hired to write for the SF Bay Guardian, and rode it out until that weekly folded. He soon found work as a reporter and opinion columnist at the Examiner, a job he held until just last month. These days, he's a producer/reporter for KQED News.
If you missed Part 1, please go back to hear all about Joe's parents and his upbringing in Cow Hollow.
We recorded this podcast on Zoom during quarantine in San Francisco in April 2020.
