Jenny Asarnow is a freelance journalist based in Seattle. Until early 2011, she produced talk shows and trained youth at KUOW Public Radio and created programs for freeform community station Hollow Earth Radio. In 2008, Asarnow was recognized as one of public radio's 'brightest makers' by Maker's Quest 2.0 (MQ2), an initiative of the Association of Independents in Radio and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. As part of MQ2’s pilot season, she created The Corner: 23rd and Union, a hyper-local interactive documentary and art installation about race and class on a Seattle street corner. Asarnow earned a BA in History from Brown University.
