Andrea Mustain is a journalist, producer, editor, and strategist with more than a decade of experience in the audio space. She is currently the executive producer and host of the podcast Raw Data, from PRX. She is also a seasoned video producer, and has received grants from ITVS and IDA for her documentary work.
She has been the science editor for PRX, worked as a lead strategist at a Fortune 100 tech company, written for WNYC’s The Takeaway, taught radio journalism at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, and covered high-energy particle physics at Fermilab.
Her work has appeared in Scientific American, The Christian Science Monitor, Yahoo! News, and Symmetry magazine, among others, and on PRX and the public radio program Marketplace. Take a look at LinkedIn for more details.
She spent many years working as a stagehand, but, in search of a far more lucrative and dependable career, chose journalism.
She holds degrees in theater and Russian language and literature from Northwestern University, and received her M.S. from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
She feels a little weird writing about herself in third-person, but finds that slightly less horrifying than writing all this in first-person, since that would go against all her Midwestern sensibilities — which remain intact, despite more than a decade of living in New York.
