Farai Chideya

Our Body Politic Host

Farai Chideya’s own journey has taken her to 30 countries, 49 states, and to cover every Presidential election since 1996. Chideya has brought her analysis and reporting to a variety of news outlets including ABC News, FiveThirtyEight, CNN, Newsweek, and the Intercept. She has worked both behind the scenes and in public forums on questions of media equity — the ways in which media can serve rural and urban Americans; people of all races and national backgrounds, and gender — for the health of civil society. Her most recent book, “The Episodic Career,” is about how we must be psychologically self-employed in order to pivot, grow, earn and thrive. On camera and on the air, she talks on a variety of broadcast outlets about politics, demographics and cultural analysis.
