My radio work has been heard on shows on NPR and PRI, on the Voice of America, and in podcasts. I've told stories in video form for places like Our State Magazine, the News & Observer, the city of Raleigh, and Duke University. Below are a few examples of my radio and audio work. I have also told stories live for the Monti.

For my current work at Duke Magazine I produce audio postcards and a podcast. Here's a piece about the retirement of the Duke Chapel Choir director that generated a nice response, and here's one about a class that happened to be addressing the end of the world around the time that COVID-19 hit, and here's a recent series about realizations, connected to the annual Duke Magazine special themed issue. Below is the first in a three-part audio documentary about the 1969 takeover of the administration building by African-American students. The series eventually won a a 2020 CASE Circle of Excellence Award, I'm proud to say.
