About

Bonjour.

My name is Yaël Ossowski. I'm a journalist, writer, consumer advocate, radio host, podcaster, and sometimes digital entrepreneur based in Vienna, Austria, and Charlotte, North Carolina.

At present, I'm Deputy Director at the Consumer Choice Center. I host the internationally syndicated Consumer Choice Radio on Big Talker Network out of Wilmington, N.C and Sauga 960AM in the Greater Toronto Area, every Saturday at 1 PM EST.

Previously, I was an investigative reporter at Watchdog.org, serving as Florida Bureau Chief and chief Spanish translator. From 2013-2020, I worked as a grassroots organizer and fundraiser for Students For Liberty, primarily in Europe and the United States, but also on 3 other continents.

I have written and been syndicated in hundreds of publications globally, including the Boston Herald, Chicago Tribune, Miami Herald, Austin American-Statesman, Washington Examiner, Huffington Post, The Charlotte Observer, Arizona Capitol Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Detroit News, Reason Magazine, American Spectator, The Gaston Gazette, FoxNews.com, and much more. A full list can be found here.

Since 2011, I've been a member of the Society of Professional Journalists and I studied Political Science and History at Concordia University in Montréal and the University of Vienna. I received a Master’s Degree in Philosophy, Politics, Economics at the CEVRO Institute in Prague, Czech Republic.

For other pursuits, I run a Bitcoin lightning node and I manage and produce websites, podcasts, and digital projects you'll find via my main website.

Language-wise, I can cover English, French, Spanish, and German, and my hometown is Saint-Hyacinthe, Québec.
