I'm Ashleyanne Krigbaum, and I make all kinds of radio happen. KALW 91.7FM is my home base; I host their afternoon airwaves including KALW's presentation of NPR’s All Things Considered. When I'm off-air, I'm most likely consulting folks on how to make their podcasts better, DJing a wicked dance party, producing immersive audio tours, or working on my own radio stories.

I am also:
- Editing and mixing interviews for Salon's audio department
- Bringing damn fine radio stories from podcasts and indie producers to terrestrial radio audiences as the host and sole curator/producer of KALW's weekly show, The Spot
- Producing audio tours with Antenna International for museums like SFMOMA and Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
- The managing producer for the storytelling project and podcast Phonographic Memory, which is dedicated to sharing the relationships people have with records through monthly live events

I have been a producer and on-air DJ in the Bay Area public radio community for almost 10 years. I also like to brag about the times I have worked with Pop-Up Magazine and NPR Music, and the podcasts The Heart, 99% Invisible, Reply All, Radiolab, The Noise Pop Podcast, and Life of the Law. When a free moment flies my way, I've been known to write too many letters and sculpt beehives the good, ol' fashioned way. I'm also happy to talk to big audiences about making radio.
