John’s podcast stories have appeared on NPR, 99% Invisible, & Snap Judgment (where he’s currently a producer). Click the links and listen to his amazing segments! Jeff & I heard the 99pi piece about the attempted murder of a painting last year, & it’s one of the best podcasts we’ve ever heard. His story “Blink Once for Yes” had us in tears, it was so AMAZING! It was a collaboration between Snap & Love + Radio that won a bronze at Third Coast in 2017. We never dreamed that the creator of that story would be teaching at the Pad!
John also won the Gold & Bronze Third Coast International Audio Festival awards. He is also co-founder of The Trump Diaries Project (KCRW) & contributes regularly to 99% Invisible & Curious City (WBEZ).
Here are some of John’s stories (including one about Rihanna’s tour):
