In 1997, Sean Cole was hired as a newsroom intern at WBUR in Boston. For some reason, they later began paying him. He worked at the station for nine years as a producer and reporter, spending two of those years with WBUR’s award-winning documentary series Inside Out. Along the way, he has also contributed to This American Life, All Things Considered, Weekend America, and other shows. At this writing, he is a regular contributor to Marketplace. Cole also writes poems and, sometimes, bios like this one.
