About me

Erick Trickey

I’m a magazine writer in Boston, deputy editor at Experience Magazine, and a regular contributor to POLITICO Magazine and the Washington Post. I teach journalism at Boston University. 

I’m a former staffer for Boston magazine and Cleveland Magazine.

I’ve also written for Smithsonian, The Boston Globe,, Columbia Journalism Review, Harvard Law Bulletin, and Agence France-Presse.  

My interests and obsessions include politics, cities and transit, science and technology, crime and policing, arts & culture, American history, and Eliot Ness.

I’ve written about a micronation, a microvillage, surfing Lake Erie, and going places you’re not supposed to go.

    Erick, I liked your article on the US Army in Russia after WW 1. I first learned about the “Detroit Brigade” as they were called by the Detroit Free Press, when, as a U Mich grad student, I was taking time off from writing my dissertation by roaming the stacks. I happened to come upon a book about the army in Russia. I don’t think many people know about it.

    Thank you for the article from the First World War and the mention of the Czech Legion from that time. My grandfather was a train driver in the Czech legions in an armored train that traveled through Siberia to Vladivostok, where he boarded a French ship. During the ride, they fought with the Red Army, torn tracks and Russian girls.
