From 2018 to 2019, I hosted and produced the Morehead-Cain Foundation podcast, Catalyze. In Nashville, TN, I reported for Nashville Public Radio (WPLN), and some of my pieces were selected for NPR’s Here & Now show. I’ve produced podcasts for Nashville-based startup Health:Further and Southern Foodways Alliance’s James Beard Award-winning podcast Gravy. I’m also a video-based teacher for the online learning platform Skillshare.
