Inside the Media Mind of Sandra Erwin: The Politics of Space

As a career defense reporter, Sandra Erwin focuses on providing forward-thinking information to her readers with a political twist.

After being told she had an obvious talent for writing while working at the American Defense Preparedness Association, Sandra went on to become an editor of NDIA’s National Defense Magazine and a Pentagon correspondent for Real Clear Defense. Currently, Sandra covers military space programs, policy, technology and the industry that supports this sector for SpaceNews, which has curated a new passion for space and the rising political conversation surrounding it.

In this week’s Inside the Media Minds episode, Sandra talks about the government’s increasing interest in space programs and its impact on defense and space publications. She also discusses her most impactful story to date, conferences and events on her radar and what she thinks has been the biggest story of 2018. Listen in to hear her perspectives on writing about such complex topics!
