About Patrick

I'm a reporter and podcast producer at Texas Monthly, and since 2021 I've produced narrative series including "Stephenville," a small-town true crime story that reached #10 on Apple Podcasts and was named one of Apple's "Great Listens from 2023," "White Hats," about the complicated legacy of the Texas Rangers law enforcement agency, and "America’s Girls," about the history and cultural impact of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.

Before that, I was an investigative reporter at Reveal where I reported and produced award-winning stories on immigration and climate disaster. Before I got into audio reporting, I was a magazine writer with the Texas Observer in Austin and the alt-weekly Dallas Observer.
