Peter Kampschroeder's Profile

I'm a reporter working the Public Health and Safety beat here. That means I'm covering stories related to crime, public health, and the courts. My byline will probably be appearing on other stories as I work on whatever comes up at the time, but my main focus is still going to be public safety and health.

I love stories that highlight how weird and wonderful our world is. Things like "Man throws puppy at biker gang" just make me smile. Stories that explain complicated issues are my favorite of the longer pieces out there, and I really like anything that goes deep, deep into a subject. Pieces on scientific advances and just weird facets of the world catch my eye as well-they help demonstrate that the world is a very, very interesting place.

My personal passions are politics, economics, and the sciences-I'm one of those people who is so exciting they find monetary policy entertaining.
