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 is the host and producer of Gravy, a 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, 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 2009 Gracie Award from American Women in Radio and Television for her series documenting the transgender community in western Massachusetts. 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.
