About Matt

I've produced features and podcasts for NPR, Stitcher, Slate, WNYC, KCRW, PRX, the New York Times, and American Public Media, including such shows as Freakonomics Radio, Studio 360, and Reveal. I'm currently serving as senior producer for a narrative series from Crooked Media, to be released in late 2020. My own podcast, The Briny, tells sound-rich stories about how we're changing the sea, and how the sea changes us. The Briny is part of the Hub & Spoke independent podcast collective, and has aired on public radio stations around the country. Previously, I was a producer for public radio’s Peabody Award winning arts and culture show Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen (WNYC + PRI). Before that, I was a features reporter for the Louisville Courier-Journal. I hold master’s degrees in journalism (NYU) and English (McGill).
