Gregory Warner

Warner at his best

Gregory Warner is a young independent radio producer. The first time he went to Afganistan he brought his accordian and made the movie below. He’s produced for This American Life, Radio Lab, All Things Considered and other radio programs.

He’s received two Edward R. Murow awards for his feature on an autistic youth. But his most risky adventures were spent abroad reporting in Afganistan during the war.

He produces interesting and fun to listen to audio stories, such as this piece on contracted security in Afganistan to protect soldiers.

Earlier this year he was a presenter at the Third Coast Audio Festival here in Chicago. His presentation explained how to communicate in an area of the world where, well, you can’t communicate. He explained the need for a fixer and how certain audio could be used regardless if the lister would be able to understand it; but that the emotion in the voice would be enough effect.

I respect him because he takes chances but knows how to keep his composure and still produce quality stories about important issues for the mainstream media.
