Rebecca dives deep into complicated true stories through the power of conversation and audio reporting. She is currently a podcast producer at New York Magazine/Vox Media.
At New York Magazine, she piloted, produced and scaled the company's fastest growing and most awarded podcast, Pivot with Kara Swisher and Scott Galloway . As the Lead Producer, she follows the news cycle closely, identifying unique angles on stories at the crosshairs of business, tech and media. She developed new segments, doubling the show's production to bi-weekly episodes, meeting the demands of high-intensity output and tight deadlines, while facilitating interviews with thought leaders across industries and disciplines. The show has won iHeart Best Business & Finance Podcast (2021) Webby Business Podcast of the Year (2020), Webby People’s Choice Podcast of the Year (2020), and Adweek Thought Leadership Podcast of the Year (2019). At Vox, she also produced, researched and edited Land of the Giants, a narrative series about the rise of the e-commerce behemoth Amazon.
Prior to her work with VM/NYM she built her career in public radio. Her 2017 podcast episode "Why Is Vermont So Overwhelmingly White" won the National Murrow Award for Best Audio News Documentary and received recognition from the NAACP. She was also awarded the Regional Murrow Award for Excellence in Writing (2018) for her story "The Millennial Farmer: Balancing Crops, Student Loans and Social Media". Her work has appeared on All Things Considered, Morning Edition, and The World.
In 2015, Rebecca received the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting HIV/AIDS Fellowship. During that time she reported on the ground in Cuba, embedded with the LGBTQIA community, and wrote about the Communist country's relationship with the AIDS pandemic. Her work was published in the book To End AIDS and was presented at the 2016 International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa, as well as at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
Rebecca has a Master’s in Journalism from Boston University, where she received a full-merit scholarship. She lives in Brooklyn with her beloved mutt, Cassius, and is proud to say that while she worked her way into the media industry, she paid her bills by hustling and waiting tables across the Northeast.
