Selected Radio Production Work

This page collects some selected Michigan Radio stories to which I contributed pitches, research, pre-interviewing, and booking, and in some cases web writing, audio editing and web content production. I primarily worked on the daily news and culture show Stateside. 

The production process is collaborative, so my role varies slightly in each case.
