Pop Culture & History

 

 

Here are just a few of my pop culture & history projects to date: 

 

Video:

Divided States of Women is a Webby Award-winning Vox video series hosted by journalist Liz Plank focusing on the controversial issues that affect every woman in America. This series covered a range of topics, including politics, pop culture, policy and more. I acted as researcher and segment producer for the series. In addition to carrying out the bulk of research supporting the program, I pitched and produced segments, consulted on and helped write the script, and sourced and booked expert interviewees. I also did location research, pre-interviewed subjects and wrote interview questions for the episodes.

This series has exploded in popularity. The episodes I segment produced are among the most popular; several have accumulated millions of views on social. One standout example of my work on this series is the episode “Divided States of Hygiene” which I researched and segment produced. In its first week, it reached 2.2 million+ views and 22k shares on Facebook.
