About Tara

I'm a host/producer/reporter in Louisville, Kentucky. Currently I work as a p/t producer for Ten Percent Happier, a podcast hosted by former ABC News anchor Dan Harris, all about mindfulness. I'm also a producer for A Skeptic's Path to Enlightenment, a podcast about using essential Buddhist wisdom in a modern, secular way. I spent several months as part of the kids' team at American Public Media (Brains On, Forever Ago, Moment of Um), and before that I produced a music education podcast for kids (The Music Box) for Louisville Public Media. I've been an on-air host for news, classical, and AAA radio, as well as hosting and producing my own interview show. Five Things. I've reported/produced for NPR, BBC World Service, Southern Foodways Alliance, and American Theatre. I've done tape syncs and sound gathering for Masters of Scale, CBC Radio, 99% Invisible, and more. I'm also the producer for the Louisville edition of The Moth StorySLAM.
