Allison is the creator, host and producer of Bodies, a feminist documentary podcast, supported by NPR-affiliate KCRW. Each episode is the journey of one person (specifically women and marginalized genders) to solve their medical mystery. It combines intimate, nuanced storytelling with health reporting to uncover the layers that affect health, like racism, sexism, and capitalism. Bodies was Webby-nominated for Best Documentary and has received critical acclaim from HuffPost, Bello Collective, Elle, Time, The New York Review of Books and more.
Allison has given lectures and led workshops about podcasting at WNYC's Werk It Conference, Spotify's Sound Up Fellowship, and PRX's Podcast Garage.
Allison got her start in podcasting as the host and producer of The Intern, a first-person narrative documentary about navigating the startup tech world at betaworks and living in NYC.
She was born and raised in Maryland. And after graduating from Princeton University, she taught English in northern Thailand with Princeton in Asia, then returned to the States to teach 10th grade in the Bronx. Allison also helped to launch a women’s health education non-profit in India called Pasand. She studied writing and multimedia at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies.
Allison loves biking everywhere she goes, running, cooking, being outside, and choreographed dancing to Robyn.
