About Katie Jane

I am a journalist and radio producer based in New Orleans. When there isn't a pandemic, I regularly travel to West Africa for reporting projects. 
I like to tell stories about where the rubber meets the road: What can a dump in Senegal tell us about the global economy’s speed and contradictions? How might a private city in Lagos that hails itself as a novel development be a reiteration of colonial urban development? What can suburban malls tell us about the Cold War?
I reported, produced, and hosted a radio documentary and short video for the BBC World Service and Sundance about a privatized city in Lagos, Nigeria. I also produced the podcasts CommonplaceOn View, and New Histories. I edited a podcast about ethics and entrepreneurship for Stanford University. I've done audio engineering work for The Atlantic’s Floodlines series, The Ringer’s JJ Redick Podcast, Slate’s Hi-Phi, WBUR’s Open Source, PRX’s Snap Judgement, Boston Globe’s Love Letters podcast, and multiple NPR programs. I co-curated the 2018 and 2019 seasons of Audio Under the Stars, a summer-long audio festival in Durham, North Carolina. 
As a print journalist, I’ve published work in The Appeal, The Nation, Popula, Current Affairs, Scalawag, Africa Is a Country, The New Republic, Atlas Obscura, and elsewhere.
Ask me about my time in Lagos, Nigeria on a Fulbright research fellowship, the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, or my experiences as a writing coach at my local community college.
