Hans Buetow

Hans Buetow (@hansbuetow) is a Senior Producer with American Public Media, where he develops and produces podcasts.

His current project, Terrible, Thanks for Asking , asks people to give honest answers to the question “how are you…?” Because everyone is going to go through something difficult, so we might as well talk about it. Hans has also worked with the Peabody Award-winning podcast In The Dark , the investigative podcast 74 Seconds , and many others.


Terrible, Thanks for Asking is a podcast that tells stories about the parts of life that hurt - the parts we're usually told to get through with quiet determination.
