Caitlin Kenney is an award winning creative executive with 20 years experience ensuring editorial excellence and audience growth across successful podcast and special series at NPR, Gimlet, Spotify and more.

She was one of the founding members of NPR’s award winning Planet Money, where her work was regularly heard by millions of listeners on NPR's flagship programs Morning Edition, All Things Considered and on the Planet Money podcast. At Planet Money she reported and helped edit the year-long Planet Money t-shirt project, an in-depth look at the global garment manufacturing industry. The multimedia project earned an Emmy, a Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award, and a Gerald Loeb award.
