We made a K-pop True Crime podcast. That's not what we set out to do, but it sorta ended up that way. It's about a talented Korean rapper, Stanford University, and an anonymous message board post that spiraled into a conspiracy theory that damn near tore a country apart.

The whole season is out, and if you check it out, I'd love to know what you think! Shout out to everyone else at VICE Audio for making this thing happen.

Dropped a brand new episode of the Princeton podcast I'm hosting. This one is about how money went from a rubber plantation in Africa to Princeton's iconic library.

Launched a podcast: If Everybody Knew, a project I'm working on for Princeton University. The first one is titled '...about the black musical that disappeared forever, twice', and I'm pretty damn proud of it.

I did the editing, logo creation, and music composition.

Got nominated for an Emmy for some work I made with some friends. This time, for 'American Uprising', filmed during the height of the protests last summer after the murder of George Floyd. Here's the segment I worked on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgeWII7LQ_c
