Jacob Margolis is an Associate Producer on KPCC's "Take Two" show. Jacob joined "Brand & Martinez" in June, after working at KZSC in Santa Cruz, and at the mid-day news at KPFK. When he's not working, or trying to convince his bosses to do pieces about food, he's obsessing over food, or dressing up in scantily clad spandex and riding his bike. He's still in college at UC Santa Cruz, and plans on graduating with a BA in Politics, and a minor in Latin American and Latino Studies.
