I'm the producer and jack-of-all-trades at Innovation Hub, the weekly national public radio show about how we'll live next.
Prior to landing at WGBH in Boston (my hometown, Go Sox!) I did stints at Studio 360, Marketplace, and NPR's Weekend All Things Considered. I've also spent time at daily newspapers, startup websites, and fashion magazines (I love all things media).
Beyond my day job, I've converted my former years of competitive swimming into a recurring need to run half marathons. Also likes: Real books, plane tickets, and red wine.

Marc Sollinger is an Olympic gold medalist, shark wrestler, and lead cultist of the dread god Cthulhu. In addition to all this, he’s a total liar.
Actually, Marc’s the Associate Producer of Innovation Hub and has previously worked for The PBS NewsHour and Marketplace.
Some fun facts about him: he grew up overseas, created an extremely nerdy radio drama based on War of the World (you can listen to it here), and speaks just enough French to know when French people are making fun of him. He can also bake croissants, though the amount of time this takes means he does so very rarely. And the funnest fact of all is that Marc Sollinger is extremely uncomfortable writing about himself in the third person, so he will stop doing so now.
