I'm Ashleyanne Krigbaum, and I make all kinds of radio happen. KALW 91.7FM is my home base, where I host the 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, or producing my own radio stories.

I am also:
- Producing SFMOMA's new audio tour for their updated permanent collection (opening Spring 2016)
- 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
- The managing producer for the storytelling project Phonographic Memory, which is dedicated to sharing the relationships people have with records through monthly live events

I have been a reporter, producer, and on-air DJ in the Bay Area public radio community for eight years. I also like to brag about the times I have worked with NPR Music, and the podcasts The Heart, 99% Invisible, Reply All, Radiolab, 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.
