Producer, Consider This

Eliza Dennis is a producer for NPR's afternoon news podcast, Consider This. She started her NPR journey in 2018 as a Story Lab intern and joined Weekend All Things Considered shortly after.

During her time on Weekend All Things Considered, she reported on the war in Ukraine from Moldova and Romania. She followed Pete Buttigieg around Iowa and talked to young voters in South Carolina and Washington ahead of the 2020 democratic primaries. In 2018, she reported on the midterms from Pennsylvania and won a National Press Club Breaking News Award for covering the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting. She coordinated movie coverage for Weekend All Things Considered and thanks everyone for putting up with her art house picks.

After painting and sculpting her heart out at Carleton College (BA '13), she continued her art practice in the Bay Area where she fell in love with audio. When she's not working on her latest art project, she's searching for her next good read, live show and swimming hole.
