Stories from Clark Boyd

Senior Producer & Reporter

I'm currently serving a life sentence as a storyteller. In the latest incarnation, I work as Senior Producer and Reporter for the show. On the production side, I spend my days figuring out what should go on the broadcast, and then the who/when/why/where/how of making that happen. On the reporting side, I'm prone to taking a sideways glance at just about any story that comes along.

For more than 16 years, I've been been traveling the globe in search of interesting people to put on the radio, on the web, and even on television. I recently did a two-year stint for The World in Brussels, where I mostly covered Europe's ongoing financial crisis. Before that, I served as The World's technology correspondent, and also hosted a weekly technology podcast. Since returning to the Boston newsroom, I have tackled a variety of projects, including the creation of Boston Calling, a weekly program for the BBC World Service.

Away from the office, I enjoy fine Belgian beers and single malt Scotch whisky. I like books by Kurt Vonnegut, and early Miles Davis on vinyl. Occasionally, I spoil a good walk by picking up a golf club, usually to disastrous results. More occasionally, I pick up a bass guitar, and then smash it.

A tidier, more polite lobster roll ... courtesy of Canada

The lobster roll is a summertime favorite in New England. Fresh lobster, a little mayo, some dill and a splash of lemon juice. All mixed together, and then slapped on a hot dog bun. But up north in New Brunswick, you can find some delicious Canadian variations on the lobster roll. Leave it to Chicago-based food writer Steve Dolinsky to try them all.
