#251. Rachel Slade is the acclaimed author of ‘Into the Raging Sea,’ the heartbreaking account of the sinking of the American merchant ship ‘El Faro.’ With a degree in political science from Barnard College and a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, Rachel began her journalism career as the design editor at Boston magazine and moved up the masthead to executive editor. After a decade on staff, she became a full-time freelance writer in 2016. Incredibly, ‘Into the Raging Sea’ is her first book. Rachel & I discussed her background growing up on the water, her interest in merchant shipping and her own thoughts on the tragic sinking of El Faro. This one’s an all-timer, so pay attention!
