Hello blog readers! I’m Jess Jiang, the newest member of the Planet Money team. I’ll be working as the production assistant and general utility player.
I’m a long-time podcast listener, and I’ve always admired Planet Money’s ability to translate economics and finance into relatable and understandable stories. It’s like prescription economic glasses. I’m eager to contribute by helping produce the podcast, writing for the blog and doing all the other things needed to get the show out to you, the listeners.
I got my start in radio in college, co-hosting and co-producing The Radley Porch for WYBC. I later interned with Studio 360, a weekly arts and culture public radio program produced by WNYC and PRI. And now that I’m at Planet Money, my parents are super jazzed that I’ll finally get to use that Econ major.
