Writer, Editor, Producer
Jesse Dukes is a writer and radio producer/editor from Virginia, now working from his 1960s Travel Trailer from different locations. He was a senior producer of podcasts at WBEZ, the lead producer of Motive and Curious City, and later editor for Curious City. His journalism work has been honored with a National Magazine Award, Overseas Press Club Award, National Headline Award, and his writing has been collected in Best of American Travel Writing. He’s a surfer, rock climber, home renovator, and gardener, and composes music as part of the Cue Shop co-op. He also teaches podcasting and writing.
Chris has been an actor, a cook, a teacher, a professional triathlete, a gym teacher for adults, and a writer. If he’s not reading a book, writing, or teaching other adults how to be better endurance athletes, you can find him riding a bike, cross-country skiing, cooking, or playing some kind of game. He has learned, at this point in life, that he is a jock-nerd and there is nothing wrong with that.
