Jackson Braider

Jackson Braider (independent producer, Allston, MA) has earned degrees in musicology and folklore. Before discovering radio, he worked in trade publishing, served as vice president for artists and repertoire at a small classical recording company, and taught folklore at the New School for Social Research in New York. He has contributed to: NPR’s Morning Edition, Weekend Edition and Day to Day; American Public Media’s Weekend America; and Public Radio International’s Studio 360, She Got Game and The Infinite Mind. Currently, his work is taking him to the nexus of technology and society. A longtime member of the New York singer/songwriter scene, Braider started losing his calluses as he fell into the thrall of radio production.
