Sarah Kendzior

Journalist, Author

I am a writer who lives in St Louis, Missouri. I am best known for my best-selling essay collection The View From Flyover Country, my reporting on political and economic problems in the US, my prescient coverage of the 2016 election and the Trump administration, and my academic research on authoritarian states in Central Asia.

I am also the co-host of Gaslit Nation, a weekly podcast which covers corruption in the Trump administration and the rise of authoritarianism around the world.

Since 2017, I’ve been covering the transformation of the US under the Trump administration, writing on authoritarian tactics, kleptocracy, racism and xenophobia, media, voting rights, technology, the environment, and the Russian interference case, among other topics. I am an op-ed columnist for the Globe and Mail, where I focus primarily on US politics. I am also a frequent contributor to Fast CompanyNBC News, and other national outlets. From 2012-2014 I was an op-ed columnist for Al Jazeera English.
