Second Season Episode 25: Journalist Katie Engelhart on her book “The Inevitable: Dispatches on the right to die.”

In this episode, Saul and Joe talk remotely with veteran journalist Katie Engelhart. Katie is a writer and producer, based in Toronto and New York. She is also a Fellow at New America. Lately, her work has focused on healthcare and bioethics. You can buy her book HERE on amazon

Katie’s story “What Happened in Room 10?” won a George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting in 2021. It is the product of a months-long investigation into the first COVID outbreak in an American nursing home — and, more broadly, the rise of the for-profit nursing home industry.

Previously, she worked as a documentary film correspondent and producer at NBC News. She made short documentaries from across the United States and abroad. And she appeared on The Today Show, NBC Nightly News and MSNBC.

Before that, she was as a foreign correspondent for VICE News, based in London, and Europe reporter for Maclean’s, Canada’s largest news magazine. She won a Canada National Magazine Award for her coverage of Ukraine’s Euromaidan revolution. 

Katie is a graduate student of History and Philosophy at Oxford University, and worked as a researcher for the historian Timothy Garton Ash. 

Hospice Chaplaincy is a nonprofit organization committed to promoting excellence in spiritual care at the end of life. We are committed to the belief that people from all backgrounds, cultures and faith traditions should experience the end of life in a way that matches their own spiritual/religious values and goals. The task of dying is complicated and often confronts us with lots of spiritual, emotional and physical suffering. Hospice Chaplaincy is dedicated to providing support and professional development resources for hospice chaplains, patient advocacy, and education services to the public, to create a cultural shift to inform and transform our thinking around the psychosocial and psychospiritual issues at the end of life .
