WNYC: Taking It Public

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

WNYC is home to some of the most impactful and important journalism in the country. Built around the tagline “Taking It Public,” we created a series that shed light on the deep reporting of their podcasts and radio shows. We used animation, a dynamic sound wave device, and voices of the reporters themselves to tell the story.

EPISODE 1: THE OTHER LATIF

Radiolab reporter Latif Nasser always believed his name was uniquely his own. Until he makes a shocking discovery that he shares his name with another man: Detainee 244 at Guantanamo Bay.

EPISODE 2: TRUMP, INC

He’s the president, yet we’re still trying to answer basic questions about how his business works and who might be profiting from his administration: What deals are happening and who they’re happening with?

EPISODE 3: THE BRIAN LEHRER SHOW

Brian Lehrer leads the conversation about what matters most now in local and national politics, our own communities and our lives.
