Since she started making radio at the tender age of 15, Tina Antolini has produced stories on everything from the sex lives of lobsters to Iraqi religious minorities to a secret bunker in the woods of Massachusetts that houses an archive of East German films. Tina currently serves as Senior Story Producer for Pop-Up Magazine. She was the founding host and producer of Gravy, a James Beard Award-winning podcast with the Southern Foodways Alliance that tells stories about the South through the lens of food. Previously, she was a senior staffer with State of the Re: Union (SOTRU), and a daily news reporter and host at New England Public Radio. She’s also produced for the science and nature program Pulse of the Planet, and for a slew of national public radio programs. Her radio stories have won numerous awards, including a Peabody, an Edward R. Murrow Award, and a Gracie Award from American Women in Radio and Television. Antolini received her B.A. in Ethnomusicology and American Studies from Hampshire College, and is also a graduate of the radio program at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies. She can bake a mean apple pie, sing a killer cover of “Mustang Sally,” and will happily spend hours in a cafe with a stack of books and newspapers to occupy her.
