But first, they begin with a burning question that bugs Michelle every time nice weather arrives and folks start gathering around the grill. Let’s take a listen.

Along with offering tips on how to become a freelance writer, Fogarty also shares how her career path took shape early on. Spoiler alert: Mignon's story involves a fire in a college science lab and a rookie reporter springing into action!
