Michael Grunwald was most recently a senior staff writer for POLITICO Magazine and editor-at-large of The Agenda. He recently left to work exclusively on his new book about food and climate.
Today we spoke about the great new podcast that Mike is co hosting with the great Tamar Haspel. Climavores is a show about eating on a changing planet. Each week, journalists Tamar Haspel and Mike Grunwald explore the complicated, confusing, and surprising relationship between food and the environment.
Before joining POLITICO in November 2014, Mike was a staff writer for The Boston Globe, a national staff writer for The Washington Post and a senior national correspondent for Time magazine. He has won the George Polk Award for national reporting, the Worth Bingham Prize for investigative reporting and many other journalism honors. He is also the best-selling author of “The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era” (Simon & Schuster, 2012) and “The Swamp: The Everglades, Florida, and the Politics of Paradise” (Simon & Schuster, 2006).
Mike lives in Miami Beach with his wife, Cristina Dominguez, an attorney; their children, Max and Lina; and their Boston terriers, Candy and Cookie.
