Lori Lizarraga

Award-winning journalist Lori Lizarraga is a co-host of NPR's Code Switch, the preeminent podcast about race and identity in America. Before joining NPR, she reported across the country in Texas, California, Colorado and internationally in Ecuador. She has a reputation for breaking news and a passion and energy for covering under-reported communities, civil rights and issues surrounding immigration and Latinos in the U.S.

When she's not telling stories alongside her co-hosts Gene Demby and B.A. Parker or traveling to Texas to see her best friends — her abuela, her four siblings, or her 2-year-old nephew, Liam — she is most likely eating soup dumplings, cooking something spicy, making friends wherever she goes or dancing to her latest playlist.
