Zach is available forProduction, hosting, and writing work for podcasts or radio shows that dig into pop culture. I'm just starting out in the industry, so I'm open to try out a little of anything.
Zach is a podcast producer currently living in LaGrangeville, NY. He co-hosts and produces Rad or Sad, a weekly pop culture podcast where he and his partner, Lexi, espouse hard and ridiculous opinions about oddly specific things you never thought you'd relate to, but somehow do. Zach has been hosting and producing radio and podcasts since 2017 at his university's radio station, Wildcat 91.9 FM.
The show was a finalist for Best Podcast at the 2020 Intercollegiate Broadcast System Conference.
"Asbestos Falls" is about a definitely normal, definitely not-strange small town in Middle America which finds itself beleaguered by the supernatural. If it sounds similar to "Welcome to Night Vale," it is, though neither James nor I have ever listened to it. Convergent evolution at work, kids.
This show won Best Podcast at the 2019 Intercollegiate Broadcast System Conference.
For my research, I conducted interviews with Dr. Pacey Foster, the archivist who runs the Massachusetts Hip-Hop Archive, and with Matt Reyes, a Boston native who grew up listening to and performing on "Lecco's Lemma." With permission from Pacey, I also scoured through the archive, and pulled a lot of audio materials from it to give listeners of my documentary a chance to hear "Lecco's Lemma" in its original form.
This documentary won an Award of Excellence from the Broadcast Education Association and was a finalist for Best Documentary at the 2020 Intercollegiate Broadcast System Conference.
