Eric Nuzum is one of the audio industry’s top “go-to” experts in podcasting, radio, and spoken word entertainment. Eric led NPR’s initial efforts in podcasting in 2005 and remained that effort’s creative and strategic force for a decade, in which time NPR grew to be the world’s largest distributor of podcasts. Eric developed many of NPR’s most successful podcasts, and continued that record of success during his tenure as Audible’s leader for short-form content and podcasting. Eric is currently writing a book on audio and podcasting creation, titled Make Noise, set for publication by Workman Publishing in December, 2019.
Eva Wolchover wasn’t always a podcast producer. She once wrote for a major Boston tabloid, where she was forced to write sports stories. Like many before her, she got into podcasting by way of public radio, starting at Car Talk and then spending six years as a producer on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! She once broke NPR when she booked Kim Kardashian as a guest. Most recently she worked at Audible, where she helped develop and produce shows like Esther Perel’s Where Should We Begin? Her greatest achievement is that her dog was in The Onion five years ago.

Destry Maria Sibley has made podcasts for WNYC, Panoply, Columbia University, the Pop Culture Collaborative, and others. As a Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storyteller, she spent a year in Mexico producing a historical mini-series about child refugees, the global spread of fascism, and her grandmother. In her spare time, she’s working on a doctorate in American literature, but her greatest aspiration is to breed Great Dane show dogs — or at the very least to make a podcast about them.
Noor Wazwaz always knew she wanted to tell stories, but never thought she’d be doing it through audio. She fell in love with the intimacy of audio storytelling when she got her start at NPR as an intern. From there, she stayed on as a producer working on Morning Edition, Up First, Invisibilia, Embedded, and Throughline. Her favorite stories are about people and moments that capture the complexity of their story. Noor’s incredibly curious about the world and loves getting to know people on a deeper level, past the formalities. When she’s not producing, she’s taking pictures. She tweets, but mostly instagrams: @nfwazwaz
