Alison Craiglow Hockenberry
Alison Craiglow Hockenberry is executive producer of Freakonomics Radio and Tell Me Something I Don’t Know, and is chief-of-staff of Dubner Productions. She is an Emmy- and Peabody-Award winning journalist who has worked in TV, film, print, radio, podcasts, and on the web. She is also a proud mother of five children — which is not all that different from producing: scrambling to deal with late-breaking news, meeting impossible deadlines, managing stubborn personalities, and best of all, getting a front row seat to great stories.
The joy of creating and manipulating sound has fueled long-time recording studio professional Merritt Jacob’s lifelong pursuits of guitar and audio engineering. After earning a B.A. in Music from the University of Arizona, he further developed high standards of excellence in audio, working at Trout Recording in Brooklyn, before landing jobs in the WNYC news room. There, working on a diverse range of broadcast features, he developed the radio editing and mixing skills that led him to the Freakonomics Radio team. He is a fan of WNYC Radio, Freakonomics, and all things sound-related.
Eliza Lambert is a producer, a recent New York University graduate, and a dedicated public-media-phile. She has worked on oral histories in association with the U.S. Department of State and Habitat for Humanity of West Virginia, among others. Before Freakonomics Radio, she interned at MPBN, SiriusXM, and WNYC. She is passionate about democratizing media access, literature, and talking to strangers. She doesn’t have anything clever to say about herself at this time.
Prior to joining Freakonomics Radio, Greg Rosalsky studied economics and public policy at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School. He loves bad puns, writing, and social science. In a former life, he was a researcher at the White House and involved in politics. Raised in California, he can now be found in Brooklyn grumbling about bad weather and burritos compared to the ones at home.
Stephanie Tam is a producer, researcher, and writer. She began her radio adventures as an intern at WNYC’s Radiolab, and she has also worked for First Look Media’s Maeve in America and the Centre for Effective Altruism’s Doing Good Better podcasts. Before journalism, she pursued her love of stories and the social sciences through her master of studies in world literatures and master of science in social policy and interventions at the University of Oxford as a Daniel M. Sachs Scholar. Every so often, she spouts poetry, puts on running shoes, and rambles through Central Park – all at the same time.
