Scott Thomas Anderson

Scott Thomas Anderson is a California journalist whose work regularly appears in The San Francisco Chronicle and The Sacramento News & Review.
A 2018 Fellow for The USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism, he's written for a diverse range of publications, from The Irish Independent to Distiller's Magazine.

For more than 15 years, Scott has primarily covered American crime, the drug world, environmental threats and the impacts of poverty. He's been awarded the California News Publishers Association's highest honors for feature writing, governmental coverage, agricultural reporting and breaking news.

Scott's been interviewed about homicide investigations nationally on the Travel Channel, and internationally on Ireland's Radio 1: Drivetime. In recent years, Scott has balanced his hard news focus with cultural reporting and travel journalism, filing pieces on his time spent in Mexico, Greece, Croatia, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Scotland and Southern France. In 2019, he produced his first documentary podcast series, "Drinkers with Writing Problems," which travels to cities around the world to study the link between drinking culture and creative legacies. That series is live on iTunes, Audible and Stitcher.
