I produce journalist and Al Jazeera host Mehdi Hasan's weekly podcast Deconstructed.

I produced the webby-nominated political podcast Candidate Confessional for Huffpost. In this episode, senators Kent Conrad and Dick Durbin reflect on their decisions to vote against authorizing the invasion of Iraq.

I hosted and produced this episode of Huffpost's weekly news podcast, So That Happened, in which I talked with Huffpost reporters and former Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis about the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

In this episode of Candidate Confessional, we talked with ex-congressman Trey Radel about the cocaine bust that ended his political career.

In this episode of So That Happened, hosts Jason Linkins and Zach Carter talk to MSNBC host Chris Hayes about his book A Colony In A Nation.

For two years I produced The Good Fight with Ben Wikler, a political long-form documentary podcast that reached #1 on the iTunes charts. Long before his ignominious departure from the senate, we interviewed Al Franken to get the story of his fight against the proposed Comcast/Time Warner Merger.

During my time reporting on the music scene in New Orleans, I produced a weekly interview podcast for Offbeat Magazine. Here I talk with Cajun accordionist Bruce Daigrepont.
