Journalism is a tough business, with magazines and newspapers perishing at a steady clip and a largely unvetted Internet providing content from writers who are largely underpaid. Karen Asp, however, is remarkable: a professional journalist and author with a food, health, and fitness specialization and a reputation so solid she’s one of the few full-time freelance writers making it — acing it, in fact — in the brave new world.
In addition to sharing with us her writer’s life in 2023 — and some snazzy tips for youthful aging from her book Anti-Aging Hacks — Karen lets us in on her other life as a companion animal rescuer. Tune in to hear her gripping story of volunteering for one of the shelters tasked last year with transporting beagles from the Envigo facility in Virginia, a breeding plant producing dogs for the research industry.
