Annie co-hosts and produces the podcast Undiscovered along with Elah Feder. Sometimes, this entails visiting labs to look at tiny, glowing worm brains. Or digging through archives in search of 50-year-old chain letters. Or spending WAY too much time in a foam-padded closet (the “recording booth”).
Prior to Undiscovered, Annie produced stories about science and the arts for the Friday radio show. (Like this story, about guitar playing robots, and this one, where astronauts review “Gravity” à la Siskel and Ebert.)
Annie’s first run-in with radio was as an undergrad at Columbia University, where she covered the New York arts scene for the universe’s best radio station, WKCR-FM (“Sit Back and Dig the Shellac”). Since she couldn’t major in radio, she earned a B.A. in American Studies.
She’s also been an assistant producer for the world’s only rock ‘n’ roll talk show, WBEZ’s “Sound Opinions,” where she had the honor of meeting the Jesus of Cool, Nick Lowe. Rock on.
