Hi, I'm Amy. I'm an award-winning writer and editor covering the environment, health, technology, and culture for a variety of national publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and Popular Science. I also report for various NPR member stations and shows, host a few podcasts, and produce several more through Critical Frequency, the podcast network I launched in March 2018. Several recent clips are available below. If you're interested in contacting me for editing or writing gigs, to pitch me a story, or talk about my book, shoot me a note at amy dot westervelt at gmail dot com. Thanks!
