I'm a radio reporter, editor, and producer based in Philadelphia, PA. But I'd say my career started in middle school with a tub of coffee ice cream.
Once I was old enough to be home alone, I'd get off the school bus, grab the carton of Mocha Chip from our freezer, and head upstairs to listen to The Moth Radio Hour in my room. The daily ice cream eventually left the picture; my love of audio did not.
My work has been heard nationally on NPR, Science Friday, and on public media stations across the country via America Amplified and Harvest Public Media. As a producer at Nebraska Public Media, I was honored regionally and nationally by the Nebraska Broadcasters Association, the Midwest Broadcast Journalists Association, and the Public Media Journalists Association for my coverage of regional agricultural issues.
I currently provide soup-to-nuts producing and editing services for podcasts. Right now, my clients include Things That Go Boom (Inkstick Media/PRX), Us & Them (West Virginia Public Broadcasting/PRX), and The Children's Hour. I'm known for diving into any topic with reckless abandon, but I particularly love stories about food, agriculture, disability, and grey areas.
Whatever you call what happened at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, a rally — a protest — a riot — or an insurrection, the congressional investigation and hearings are forging new territory. On this episode of Us & Them, we look at who’s watching the hearings, who’s not and why. What some call a clarifying moment in our nation’s experiment in democracy is surprisingly forgettable to others.
In the mid-19th century, explorer John Wesley Powell observed what he called "a wonderful transformation": a dramatic and specific point at which the Eastern United States turns into the West, where green shifts to brown, humidity to dry air, fertile soil to barren dirt. Scientists today say climate change has pushed the variation nearly 150 miles to the east, putting new regions firmly into weather patterns that discourage the usual means of agricultural production.
America’s war on communism in southeast Asia dragged the entire region into the fray, and the impacts are still an ever-present danger. But here’s what we didn’t get into before: The legacy of that violence here — in our own communities.
Today, much of the nationwide push to preserve and highlight southeast Asian heritage is being led by a younger generation, raised in America by refugees. They’re opening restaurants, taking over family businesses… and embracing their own definition of true southeast Asian food.
