Shoshannah Buxbaum is a producer for Science Friday. She’s particularly drawn to stories about health, psychology, and the environment.
Prior to joining Science Friday, she guest-hosted Utah Public Radio’s weekly science and research show, UnDisciplined. She started her career in television at New Jersey’s PBS Station, where she produced daily news segments and the station’s weekly public affairs shows. She holds a master’s degree from CUNY’s Newmark Graduate School of Journalism, with a health and science reporting concentration and audio specialization.
She’s a proud New Jersey native and will happily share her opinions on why the state is deserving of a little more love. When she’s not at work, you can find her hiking in the woods or experimenting with a new soup recipe.
