About vanessa

Vanessa Lowe is an Independent Radio Producer, Musician, and Dormant Psychologist. She aims to tell concise and compelling stories in a variety of mediums. Vanessa produces the podcast, "Nocturne", which is an exploration of the night and of how people's thoughts, feelings and behaviors transform in the dark. "Do I truly know you if I only know the daytime you?" Nocturne is story driven and sound-rich, with experimental music mash-ups. The show was featured in the New Yorker in 2017. Vanessa produced “Shake It! A modern Polaroid love story” in 2014, with co-producer, Megan Jones. “Shake It!” takes a tender look at two modern photo technologies - Polaroid and digital photography - and the human and visual connections we make with them. “Shake It!” debuted on WNYC, and aired on over 60 public radio stations around the U.S. Vanessa was an Associate Producer for “RISE: Climate Change and Coastal Communities”, a multimedia project including 3 hour-long audio documentaries, six 6-minute“webstories”, and six 20-minute podcasts. The hour-long pieces have played on over 200 public radio stations in the United States, as well as internationally through NPR Worldwide. Vanessa's piece "Before You Do This" (co-produced with Kent Sparling) was one of the top ten finalists in KCRW's 24-Hour Radio Race in 2014. She was also a participant in the Transom Traveling Workshop on Catalina Island in the summer of 2014, where she produced "Leaving Neverland". In 2012 Vanessa Produced “Beat Pedaler”, a 30-minute audio doc about bike activist, rapper, inventor and educator Paul Freedman, aka "Fossil Fool, the bike rapper".
