Rebecca dives deep into complicated true stories through the power of conversation and audio reporting. She is currently the Head of Audio at Archewell Audio, overseeing the creative partnership between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Spotify.
Before joining Archewell, she was a lead podcast producer at New York Magazine/Vox Media. There she piloted, produced and scaled the company's fastest growing and most awarded podcast, Pivot with Kara Swisher and Scott Galloway . During her years producing the show, the podcast 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 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. 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.
