Up in Smoke

Up in Smoke I made this podcast as a demo tape for a contract position at the National Institutes of Health Intramural Research Program. Since the position involved telling scientific stories I interviewed Jeff Ballin about the Vaping and some of the dangers that have become associated with it. Additionally, we talked about the new methodologies being used for testing to reduce the amount of testing on animals. I had some production trouble with this episode which will be remidied by the...

Sufficiently Advanced This podcast was produced for a position at Cyberwire as an audio editor. Since it was a tech company I decided to focus on emerging tech, which for this episode was self-driving cars. Still threw in some sociology and philosophy because how can we talk about tech without talking about how it affects our society.

The Prologue

The Prologue Notes This news podcast was produced for NPR and Slate applications. I decided to cover an emerging news story and to give it the historical context that is often lacking in television reporting. The major difficulty was deciding which events to summarize and how short of a summary should they be. In my reporting I tried to go for an unbiased tone, such as calling the Houthi an armed group rather than a terrorist group or a freedom fighter group. All music was composed by...

Pride and After Pride This demo tape was made for the National Center for Transgender Equality. This is less of a podcast and more of an audio essay since the position was for a storytelling trainer rather than in podcast production. The audio essay was written by Luci Lyons and describes their life experience. All music was composed by Kevin MacLeod and was licensed under creative commons. You can find more of his music at www.incompetech.com. This podcast is powered by Pinecast.

It's Not Just Propaganda

It's Not Just Propaganda I made this demo tape for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM). The primary mission of the USHMM is to educate people about the Holocaust and to try to prevent future genocides from happening. Since part of the position was that of researcher, I searched through the USHMM digital collection to find primary documents. I found the journal of Staff Sergeant Louis Ranciato and decided to make a podcast episode that would tie in with the USHMM American...

Wait... why is this a bad thing?

Wait... why is this a bad thing? This podcast was made about the Kashmir controversy that was going on during August 2019. The Quincy Institute is a bipartisan think tank who's mission is to produce policy papers to American military intervention overseas. I decided that covering a U.S. foreign policy crisis would make a good impression. In this podcast I try my best to give context to the Kashmir conflict so that the controversy around President's Trumps could be better understood. All...
