Kyle Norris

I am a journalist and storyteller always pushing for conversational, vulnerable and revealing personal narratives that tell a bigger story. I prefer working on a team or in collaboration versus working solo. I'm flexible, creative and always on time.

I can help your podcast be better or I can help you create one from scratch. I come from the world of public radio and NPR, so my background is rooted in solid journalism, deep research, and creating stories that are conversational, meaningful & timely. I also teach audio journalism to teenagers, and enjoy teaching the basics of podcasting, storytelling, and audio journalism to adults as well.
