Kathleen Davis is a producer at Science Friday, which means she spends the week brainstorming, researching, and writing, typically in that order. She’s a big fan of stories related to strange animal facts and dystopian technology.
Before joining the Science Friday team, Kathleen reported on tech and other news at WESA, Pittsburgh’s NPR station. She got her feet wet in the public radio world during her time at the University of Michigan, home of Michigan Radio.
Kathleen is from the great state of Michigan, and is always eager to extoll the virtues of freshwater lakes and Coney Island diners. She can often be found taking long walks to run errands that would be done much faster by other modes of transportation.
