Eric Molinsky

Producer, Studio 360

Eric Molinsky knew he wanted to be a public radio producer by the tender age of 32. He had been hooked on Studio 360 while sitting in his cubicle along Sunset Boulevard, drawing storyboards for Rugrats. Finally it was time to stop annoying his fellow animators with his lunchbreak theories about the cultural zeitgest, and he moved back East to hook up with the Studio 360 crowd.

He quickly became the program's house cartoonist, and went on to coproduce in Studio 360's "American Icons" programs on the Wizard of Oz, the Lincoln Memorial, and Superman. He's also produced stories about many of his favorite artists, like Aimee Mann and Jules Feiffer. Originally from Massachusetts, Eric studied at Wesleyan University and the California Institute of the Arts.
