My work with Garrett Graff included serving as the researcher on the award-winning podcast, Long Shadow: Rise of the American Far Right, a seven-episode production by Long Lead and Campside Media. 
The Ruby Ridge raid, the Waco siege at the Branch Davidian compound, the Oklahoma City bombing, the January 6 insurrection… all explosive moments in recent U.S. history. But connect the dots between these — and other — seemingly disparate, violent events, and you’ll answer some of the most existential questions facing the U.S. today: How did America get the far right so wrong? What will it take now to get it right?
Hosted by Pulitzer finalist and investigative reporter Garrett M. Graff, Long Shadow’s second season explores how the modern domestic extremist movement grew from a fatal shootout on a mountain top in Idaho and led to a riot on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Crackling with rich archival sound and riveting interviews, this seven-episode limited series examines a thread of history that’s vitally relevant to our current political climate.
My work on this book included: 
♦ Drafting detailed research memos for each episode, including timelines of key events and figures
♦ Participated in production meetings and provided feedback on script drafts
♦ Assembled lists of possible guest and experts to interview as part of the series
