About Zach

I’m an award-winning reporter and podcast producer writing about politics and conspiracy theories. I’m co-host of If All Else Failsa new series on far-right extremism in Upstate New York that was featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and WNYC’s All Of It. My earlier series on Donald Trump’s potential running mate was honored by the Society of Professional Journalists, the Radio Television Digital News Association, and Public Media Journalists Association. I also help other people make their podcasts sound great.

I studied Cultural Anthropology and hosted my first radio show at the University of Vermont before attending the Transom Story Workshop, a residential audio journalism program in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. I then worked as a staff reporter at North Country Public Radio before moving to New York City.
