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.
A native of the New York metro area, Katie currently calls New Jersey home (and feels guilty about it). She hopes to one day live near the beach.
Congress wants to make federally funded research available for free. But someone will have to pay.
