Jenn Murphy was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. This does not mean that she sings “Good Morning Baltimore” every day when she wakes up, nor does she run in fear anytime she hears someone whistling  “The Farmer in the Dell.” A junior at Columbia, she still lives in the dorms and actually enjoys lukewarm cafeteria food. She loves everything pop culture and realistically hopes to one day cover the entertainment industry for Vulture or Entertainment Weekly. Unrealistically, she would love to be a correspondent on “The Daily Show.”

Alex Harrell is a junior at Columbia College Chicago, double-majoring in journalism and graphic design. She lives between the South Loop and Chinatown, which makes her slightly nostalgic for her hometown, Philadelphia. When Alex isn’t writing music reviews or learning how to use Illustrator’s pen tool, she loves exploring national parks and attempting to hike. Alex has a severe case of wanderlust and envisions herself roaming Europe as an international writer for Atlantic magazine or the BBC, or designing for Vice and Adbusters.

Readers can offer Alex internships through her email (ax.harrell@gmail.com) or read retweeted Mother Jones’ articles on her twitter @deadflowergirl (don’t ask).
