Austin Fast - Audio producer

Audio producer

As an audio producer, I love using narrative storytelling and podcasting to present my community’s stories and help people better understand the world around them. I’m in Tampa Bay for the summer as I work toward a master's degree in investigative journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University. Prior to moving to the desert, I covered the world’s largest wild salmon fishery at a public radio station in rural Alaska, wrote breaking news at a Cincinnati TV station and taught English overseas with the Peace Corps. I love to explore national parks, road-trip, bike, hike, and try out new local breweries or restaurants with my partner. I can recite all of Dorothy’s best zingers from The Golden Girls and would be happy to eat nothing but mint Oreos for the rest of my life.
