Hi. My name is Stephanie. My sisters named me after one of their dolls (youngest child problems). I'm a podcast producer, editor, sound designer, and journalist. I like telling meaningful, strange, and mission-driven stories that take listeners into new worlds. 

 

I'm currently a senior producer at Dustlight Productions. Through Dustlight I've had the chance to work on some incredible shows including Season 2 and 3 of How to Citizen with Baratunde and Mother Country Radicals ⁠— Dustlight's latest collaboration with Crooked Media and Audacy It also happens to be 

a Tribeca '22 Official Selection for Audio Storytelling! The ten-part series will premier on June 8th. I've currently got another Duslight-Crooked collab brewing (coming this Fall!). 

 

Before all of that, I studied journalism at Northeastern University and podcast production at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies. I have expertise in both food and travel media, and I've dabbled a bit in video production. 

When I'm not making radio, I am trying not to fall on an aerial hoop or pestering my aloof dog to love me. 

Feel Free to reach out to me at cohn.stephanie16@gmail.com

Voices from a Black Lives Matter Protest

On May 25, 2020 George Floyd was killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis. Around the country, people left their homes in the midst of a pandemic to protest Floyd's death and the epidemic of police brutality in the USA. Here are a few voices from a protest in Boston. 

Made For This

In a 24-foot inflatable boat, racing against 20 knot winds and unpredictable North Atlantic conditions, Mackie Greene approaches a 70 ton animal that’s thrashing, trying to get away. These conditions are not for the faint of heart, but Mackie has help. Mackie Greene leads the Campobello Whale Rescue Team, a group of ocean experts who work like a volunteer fire to free whales caught in fishing lines and netting.

Mackie is also a fisherman, and It’s the fishing lines that are putting the whales at risk. This is why he says he has to help, despite the danger involved in saving them.  Last summer though, something happened that shook him and his team-- that made him question whether he wanted to commit or quit.
