Shereen Marisol Meraji      

Senior Producer & Co-Host of the 'Code Switch' Podcast on NPR

Shereen Marisol Meraji is the co-host and senior producer of NPR's Code Switch podcast where she covers race, identity and culture. She didn't grow up listening to public radio in the back seat of her parent's car. She grew up in a Puerto Rican and Iranian home where no one spoke in hushed tones, and where the rhythms and cadences of life inspired her story pitches and storytelling style. As a young producer, Meraji found herself in the midst of a wave of demographic changes that she was poised to report on. She understood the nuances of the Latinx community, which she was not only a part of, but studied in college.

Today, she's an award-winning journalist and co-founder of the pre-eminent podcast about race and identity in America, NPR's Code Switch. And, when she's not telling stories that help us better understand the people we share this planet with, she's dancing salsa, baking brownies or kicking around a soccer ball.
