Like Glenn Gould and Drake, Sean Rameswaram was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. At the tender age of 16, he was snatched up by the circus and taken to the well-manicured stucco suburbs of Los Angeles, California. Left to fend for himself, Sean cultivated a passion for public radio, the arts, and quesadillas.
As a reporter and producer, Sean impressed his love of pop culture, street art, and museums upon the listeners of WAMU in Washington DC and KUSP in Santa Cruz. He has also posted daily to Goodosphere.com, a blog he founded with some friends in 2010.
In 2012, Sean joined the staff of Studio 360 in New York, where he has produced dozens of interviews for Kurt Andersen, including Mel Brooks, Haim, Alfonso Cuarón, and an utterly zen Rick Rubin. He connected with horror maestro Wes Craven on Twitter and together they launched Studio 360’s Scary Shorts Film Fest. At WNYC’s 2013 holiday party, Sean sang back-up vocals for On The Media’s Brooke Gladstone during a karaoke version of “I Touch Myself” by Divinyls. He lives with his two roommates on the Internet.
