Sonja Cho Swanson


Hullo! I’m a writer based in Las Vegas. I’m also an audio producer for Gastropod, a podcast that looks at food through the lens of science and history.

In 2017, I moved back to the U.S. after living in South Korea for seven years, where I spent a year on a Fulbright grant, worked in corporate marketing, tutored a K-pop producer, tried my hand at voice acting, and helped launch Time Out Seoul.

More recently: I’m a 2019 recipient of the 11th Hour Food and Farming Journalism Fellowship at UC Berkeley.
