Martine Powers

Martine Powers (@martinepowers) is the host of Post Reports, the Washington Post's flagship daily news podcast. As a speaker at the 2019 Late Night Provocations, Martine will admit: "I'm tired of pretending that I love every single thing I make."

Before that, she was a newspaper reporter with an all-consuming passion for audio. She attended the Transom Story Workshop in 2015, and was the creator and producer of The Get, a podcast about black women and their personal and professional lives. Martine has also worked as a reporter at the Boston Globe and Politico, and spent a year as a Fulbright fellow in Trinidad & Tobago.
