About Avishay

Hello! I'm Avishay Artsy, an audio producer and reporter based in Los Angeles. I'm the senior producer of Vox's daily news explainer podcast Today, Explained. I've launched an eclectic assortment of podcasts: Works In Progress, from the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture, which I hosted; Western Edition, on the history and the environment of the West, with seasons on Western wildfires and L.A.'s Chinatown; Rodeo Drive, about fashion, art and retail; and Let's Get Fur-Real, about emerging pet culture and the human-animal bond. I also teach audio production and podcasting at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.

My background is in public radio, including eight years at KCRW in Santa Monica, Calif., where I was a news producer and reporter, and produced and edited a weekly urbanism show, Design and Architecture. I got my start at WPFW in Washington D.C., and continued on to Paris Live Radio in Paris, France; Nebraska Public Radio; New Hampshire Public Radio; and Marketplace in Los Angeles. My reporting has appeared on PRI's The World, WHYY's The Pulse, KQED's The California Report, Studio 360, Marketplace, and other venues. I'm now freelance reporting and producing for a number of podcasts.
