About Andrea

Hi, I’m Andrea Gutierrez. I am a writer and audio producer in Los Angeles. These days you’ll find me making radio as a producer on NPR podcast It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders. I’m drawn to stories at the intersections of gender, race, class, and ability in arts and culture. I’m a longtime storyteller with work in print, digital, and audio. I got my start in radio producing interviews and features for The Frame, a daily arts and entertainment radio show on NPR station KPCC. Past bylines include BBC World Service, The Current (CBC), LAist, The California Sunday Magazine, Marfa Public Radio, Bitch, make/shift, Huizache, and the Los Angeles Review of Books. In 2019, I was named an AIR New Voices Scholar and a finalist in KCRW’s 24-Hour Radio Race. Prior to working radio, I spent several years as a university administrator. I taught, counseled, and mentored students at UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Riverside, and Cal State LA. A lifelong Southern Californian, I received a B.A. in German studies at Scripps College and an MFA in creative nonfiction at the University of California, Riverside. I’m an alum of the AIR Full Spectrum Storytelling Intensive, Transom Traveling Workshop and the VONA Voices Workshop for writers of color.
