Hi. My name is Stephanie. I'm a podcast producer, editor, sound designer, and journalist based in New England. I like telling meaningful, strange, and
mission-driven stories that take listeners into new worlds.
I'm currently a producer and editor at Dustlight Productions. I senior produced Season 2 of How to Citizen with Baratunde and am excited to wear a new hat as the editor of Season 3 (coming this Fall!). I am also producing a long-form series through Dustlight and Crooked Media yet to be announced (all I can say is it's gonna be great).
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.
My inability to sit still has led me to work around the world - from Chile to Peru, Denmark to Australia, Hawaii to Maine. On all these long flights, car rides, and train journeys, audio stories have kept me company. I hope mine can keep you company as well.

In People We Trust (with Aisha Nyandoro)
Baratunde digs into the world of Universal Basic Income and Guaranteed Income. Where does this money come from? Who gets the money? Will people still work? What will people even spend it on? And how on earth does free cash help our economy? Baratunde sits down with Aisha Nyandoro to find out what exactly happens when you give people in extreme poverty a thousand dollars a month, no strings attached.

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.
