Jackson Roach

Jackson Roach is an independent producer living in Chicago, and the 2020 Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Competition intern.

Jackson grew up listening to public radio in Los Angeles, started trying to make their own stories in high school and college, and soon fell in love with audio and the people who make it. Since then, they've been a producer at State of the Human, Generation Anthropocene, Raw Data, and Open Stacks, and made stories for 99% Invisible and Radiolab.

Right now, when they're not working with Third Coast, they're working on radio stories about mutual aid, overtone singing, insomnia cures, and prehistoric flight. They are also starting a balcony garden. You can listen to all of their stories at
