Katie Feather is a former producer for Science Friday and the proud mother of two cats, Charleigh and Sadie.
Katie previously worked as a reporter and producer for KBIA, WHYY, WNYC and The New York Times and has a degree in science journalism from NYU. Her work reporting on events in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014 won a National Murrow Award for small-market feature reporting.
