At TED 2015.

I'm a reporter and radio producer currently creating a new show at Gimlet Media, the home of Start-Up, Reply All, and Mystery Show. It'll come out sometime in 2016.

Previously, I was senior editor of Pop-Up Magazine, a "live magazine" that performs in big theaters across the country, and a staff producer at the public radio show and podcast Radiolab.

Before I found out I was a radio person, I got an MFA in creative nonfiction writing and wrote magazine stories (NYT Mag, Pop Sci, AARP, Oprah) and worked at National Geographic for a little while.

I was born in New Jersey; grew up in Pennsylvania; lived in the South, New York, and the Bay Area for a few years each; and now I'm back in Brooklyn. I'm @patwalters on Twitter.
