About Jackson

I make things for public radio and podcasts (some collected here), and I’m the associate producer at The Dig.

I've made stories for 99% Invisible, Radiolab, Antibody, WFMU's Radio Row, The Dig Presents, and elsewhere.

At different times, I’ve also worked at State of the Human, Radiolab, Generation Anthropocene, Raw Data, Third Coast, and the Seminary Co-op Bookstores.
