In Spring 2020, I interned with Santa Cruz Local — a local news podcast that covers important issues in Santa Cruz County. I produced a biweekly series called Santa Cruz Local Answers, where I leveraged my science journalism background and growing network of contacts in local government and at nearby research institutions to answer listener questions related to COVID-19. I sought to provide Santa Cruz County residents solutions and clarity within a local frame. The five episodes I produced received thousands of listens.
I've continued to contribute to Santa Cruz Local as a freelancer covering local news.
