natsnd.org is the online archive for the work of journalist Ben Adair, a writer and radio producer living in Los Angeles, Calif. with his wife, son, dog and cat.
Currently, I am the editorial director for American Public Media‘s sustainability and global climate change initiatives. Previously, I was managing editor and senior correspondent for APM’s Weekend America.
In 2005 and 2006, I created and hosted Pacific Drift for KPCC-FM. Before that, I produced and edited The Savvy Traveler. I’ve consulted for radio stations seeking to breathe new life into old productions, streamline editorial processes or create institutions and frameworks for increasing creativity and exceptional storytelling.
This website is many things. First and primarily, it’s an accessible link to previous work. Second, it’s a laboratory for new work, sounds and subject matters that, for whatever reason, have a hard time getting to market. Third, it’s an evolving resource for interesting sounds, ideas and conversations.
Please leave comments wherever you see fit and don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Thanks for stopping by.
