Mark is the digital producer for the show, dreaming up ways to extend discussions on the show to the web and spark new conversations between ourselves, our listeners and guests via social media. He makes it his goal to give listeners a voice in editorial meetings. And yes, he really does read every one of your emails to the show.
He's worked for The A.V. Club, Madison's Isthmus weekly paper, and local alt-weekly Tone Madison, writing on beer, nerd culture, video games, film festivals, and the occasional op-ed on the economic value of reclining seats. He has formerly worked as a science communicator for the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Chicago, interviewing engineers, computer scientists and Nobel laureate economists about their work and relating their discoveries to a mainstream audience.
In his free time, Mark dives into internet weirdness, plays with his two Boston terriers, and hangs out with his awesome wife — she gives him his best ideas.
