About Avishay

Hello! I'm Avishay Artsy, an audio producer and reporter based in Los Angeles. I've recently launched an eclectic assortment of podcasts: Works In Progress, from the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture, which I host; Rodeo Drive, about fashion, art and retail; Let's Get Fur-Real, about dogs, cats and emerging pet culture; and a forthcoming podcast on the history and the environment of the West. I also teach podcasting at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.

My background is in public radio, with time spent at WPFW in Washington D.C.; Paris Live Radio in Paris, France; NET Radio in Lincoln, Nebraska; New Hampshire Public Radio; at Marketplace; and for eight years at KCRW in Santa Monica, Calif., where I was a news producer and reporter, and the producer of the weekly show Design and Architecture. During that time I also freelance reported for PRI's The World, WHYY's The Pulse, KQED's The California Report, Studio 360, Marketplace, and other venues.
