Misha Euceph is a podcast producer and host at KPCC, where she produced The Big One: Your Survival Guide, called “riveting,” “strangely reassuring,” and “fascinating listening” by The New Yorker. She's currently producing and preparing to host "Tell Them, I Am," a podcast about how seemingly unimportant moments can wind up defining our lives -- featuring 18 Muslim-Americans.

Before coming to KPCC, she created Beginner, a series about her learning to belong as an immigrant in America. Beginner, top 200 on Apple Podcasts, was featured on NPR and WIRED. The Guardian’s Rowan Slaney said it brought her week “oodles of joy.”

In 2016, Misha helped pilot USA Today’s The City with Robin Amer. The New York Times declared the show “a mesmerizing listen.”

If you’re new to podcasts, Misha wrote How To Make a Podcast for you, a guide for making a show from beginning to end. You can read an excerpt on Los Angeles Times’ Podcast Review.

Misha got her Masters in Journalism at Northwestern University, where she hugged Michelle Obama as a White House Correspondents’ Association scholar. When she's not making podcasts, Misha writes funny things for McSweeney’s, serious things for the Wall Street Journal, and guest lectures at USC Annenberg.
