Hi, I’m Shawn Mulcahy. I’m a data journalist and audio producer based in Chicago, IL.

Equally adept at breaking news and crafting long-form investigative stories, I’ve reported on everything from the impacts of covid-19 on nursing homes, to voting rights in the Cook County Jail, to federal lobbying efforts on cannabis.

My work has appeared in outlets including The Washington Post and Cannabis Wire.

I’m a graduate student at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, specializing in social justice and investigative reporting.

Previously, I was a reporter, producer and host for WFSU Public Media in Tallahassee, Florida, where I covered state and local government.

I graduated magna cum laude from Florida State University in May 2019 with majors in public relations and political science.
