F**k It, Ship It! with Sheera Frenkel

About This Episode

Sheera Frenkel covers cybersecurity from San Francisco for the New York Times. Previously, she spent over a decade in the Middle East as a foreign correspondent. Sheera previously worked for The Times of London, McClatchy and NPR, where her fluency in Hebrew and her conversational Arabic helped land stories.

She has said that her time as a foreign correspondent aids her coverage of cybersecurity: People are always speaking different languages and their motivations are often unclear. Frenkel and her co-author Cecilia Kang were part of the team of investigative journalists recognized as 2019 Finalists for the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting. The team also won the George Polk Award for National Reporting and the Gerald Loeb Award for Investigative Reporting.
