  Alex Braunstein   Community Manager   I believe in talking to strangers and starting the day with a good breakfast. As the Community Manager, I coach, convene, and support creators to make their work. I've produced audio independently and for Rhode Island Public Radio. At Brown University, I led a program for storytelling and social change that connected members of the campus and Providence community. I’ve also collaborated with friends, producers, and musicians on community storytelling projects. My first love was photography and my best friend is my poodle, Olive.

  Ian Fox   Garage Assistant   I don't make a podcast, but I was cool once: I had my own chatcast for a few years and interned on a Minnesota Public Radio live call-in show, before I embarked on a career in politics (then in community organizing (then in fundraising.)) At NPR and at The Pew Charitable Trusts, I supported journalists and policymakers while writing grants for indie producers in my free time. Now, I'm the Volunteer Coordinator & Grants Manager for the  D.C. Listening Lounge 's annual  Sound Scene  audio art festival, I write about community engagement for  Current , and I spent eight years mentoring young journalists through the YMCA Youth & Government program. I may not make a podcast, but I do know how to bring yours to life. Say hey:   Email: ian.fox@prx.org  |  Twitter:  @IanNFox

  Palace Shaw Garage Intern    I’ve been exploring community building in the arts through museums, youth art and media literacy programs, artist resource organizations, and have come to see the importance of voice and storytelling as essential in building community. I am an interdisciplinary artist and co-host  The Whitest Cube podcast , where we explore the exclusionary history of art institutions and talk to activists, scholars, and culture workers of color as well as the city of Boston to envision a radical future for museums. I am excited to dive in at the PRX Podcast Garage and learn what it looks like to hold space for community driven media on a larger scale.   Email: palace.shaw@prx.org
