About Rick

Brewhaha Audio Productions, LLC is an audio production house, consultancy, and newsletter owned and operated by Rick Brewer in Midland, Michigan.

Brewer has been been making podcasts and radio stories since 2015.

Soon after beginning graduate school at Indiana university in Bloomington, Brewer began making radio stories for WFIU Public Radio and became an executive producer for WIUX’s American Student Radio. While in Bloomington, Brewer also hosted a morning music show at WFHB community radio and served on their podcast committee. Brewer also created the podcast GPSG Radio and contributed to PRX Remix, WAMC’s 51%, and WFYI’s Curious Mix.

In June 2019, Brewer joined Iowa Public Radio to help produce two daily talk shows, Talk of Iowa and River to River. He’s produced hundreds of interviews ranging from best-selling novelists, to hog farmers, and presidential candidates for the 2020 Iowa caucuses. Brewer also helped produce original Iowa Public Radio podcasts, including Bike Shorts and The Talk of Iowa Book Club.

Brewer was selected to judge the “best podcast” category for the 2022 Iowa College Media Association Conference.

After launching Brewhaha Audio Productions in October 2021, Brewer has worked with Iowa's former poet laureate and award-winning author Mary Swander and the Peabody-award winning audio production house Great Feeling Studios.

In March 2022, Brewer joined WCMU Public Radio as a reporter covering central and northern Michigan.
