The Field Trip Podcast is run by a small but daring crew of science reporters and radio enthusiasts.
A longtime science reporter for alt-weekly papers and magazines, and an instructor at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, her heart has really always belonged to radio. (Hi, KSPC!) Her favorite reporting adventures have involved the world’s fattest plane, ghost-hunting on a naval carrier, becoming a virtual reality test subject, and that one time when someone loaned her the key to an observatory at night. At UC Berkeley, she teaches classes focusing on hyperlocal coverage and innovative storytelling, and edits the news site Oakland North.
In the name of public radio, Casey Miner has rented her car out to total strangers, conducted a predawn interview with the Bay Area’s lone kayak commuter, and offered up her mic to militia members, mad scientists, and heartbroken penguins. She is currently a producer at KALW in San Francisco.
