My senior honors thesis, titled "Intimate Publics: Hearing Race in Radio and Podcasts," analyzed the intersection of race and journalistic authority within radio and podcasts. Written over the course of nine months and under the auspices of the Dartmouth College English Department, my thesis was originally inspired by Chenjerai Kumanyika's article "Challenging the Whiteness of Public Radio" and largely influenced by the writings of Theodor Adorno, Jacques Attali, and John Mowitt. I studied radio programs such as Amos 'n' Andy, Serial, This American Life, and Snap Judgment. I was recognized with high honors for my work.
