Tonya Mosley never expected to become a darling of public radio and podcasting; she had her heart set on becoming a print reporter. Now she hosts her podcast, “Truth Be Told,” and is the newest co-host of the iconic NPR interview show, “Fresh Air.” On this episode of Our Body Politic, host and creator Farai Chideya speaks with Tonya about her life growing up in Detroit, how she developed an interest in the news, and how her career unfolded on multiple media.
