Christie Taylor is a producer for Science Friday. Her day involves diligent research, too many phone calls for an introvert, and asking scientists if they have any audio of that narwhal heartbeat. She also coordinates SciFri’s coverage of science and the arts (“sciarts”), and is the bold captain of the Science Friday Book Club.
During her undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Christie was almost a biology major but took a chance turn down the path of thing-explaining and realized it was the only thing she wanted to do. Since then, she’s worked as a print and online reporter, technical writer, and a science writer for a university press office.
She takes extra joy in writing interview questions about space exploration, creative research methods, and the intersection of science and society.
