Caitlin Dewey Rainwater is a reporter covering food and agriculture policy at the Washington Post. She previously served as the paper’s first digital culture critic, where she pioneered the social media beat and launched The Intersect -- a two-time winner of the Society for Features Journalism's blogging excellence award. 

Outside the Post, Caitlin’s work has been published in The New York Times and Cosmopolitan, among other publications. She previously wrote the popular daily newsletter “Links I Would Gchat You If We Were Friends," which the media critic David Carr once kindly called "witty and intelligent." 

Caitlin was a 2017 fellow with the University of California Berkeley's 11th Hour Food and Farming program. She graduated summa cum laude from Syracuse University with degrees in international relations, Spanish and magazine journalism.

She currently lives in D.C. with her husband and their dog, Dory.
