Lynn Levy

Before joining Studio 360, Lynn spent five years working at Radiolab (just a few rows over at WNYC), where she produced stories about the power of blood, the loneliness of space, and the language of dolphins, among other things. She has a degree in film studies from Wesleyan University, where she was one of the last students to cut her thesis film on a big old Steenbeck editing table before everything went digital. If you're ever in Austin, TX you can take an interactive audio tour that Lynn wrote and produced. She tweets at @LynnRLevy, but not about anything terribly important.

Lynn Levy appears in the following:
