Yowei Shaw is co-host and editorial lead of NPR's Invisibilia. Her work on the show has taken listeners into the uncomfortable world of racial preferences in dating and whether you can change them, an unlikely love story in martial law era Taiwan and a Midwestern town sharply divided in how it sees wild black bears.
Shaw got her start in audio by teaching youth media (when she barely knew how to put together a story herself). Her work has been featured on This American Life, Pop Up Magazine, The World and Studio 360, and once upon a time, she made really good elevator music in Chinatown, Philadelphia.
She is a proud 2011 AIR New Voices scholar, auntie, daughter of Taiwanese-American immigrants and member of multiple girl gangs.
