Carol Eugene Park


Carol Eugene Park is a host and lead producer of Decomplicated. She is an alumna of the UBC School of Journalism, where she earned her Master of Journalism degree. Before moving out west, Park completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto, where she double majored in English and Renaissance Studies. Previously, she worked for CBC Podcasts, and learned a lot about the production of journalistic podcasts. She also wrote for The Tyee, The Globe and Mail, Global News, and more. When Park is not working, or catching up on her favourite podcasts, she likes to learn the latest Gen-Z lingo to stay relevant. And she loves her hot black coffee in the mornings. No cream. No milk. No sugar.
