Mariel Gruszko is fascinated by radio’s power to translate people’s everyday lived experiences into emotionally compelling stories. An activist who works to incorporate visual and aural media into political narratives, Mariel has volunteered at and conducted research with low power radio stations in Guatemala and Spain. Mariel received a B.A. in anthropology and economics from Brandeis University, where she first learned to produce radio broadcasts for WBRS 100.1 FM. She began working at StoryCorps after completing an M.A. in anthropology at the University of Chicago, over the course of which she became intrigued by the relationship between oral history and radio.
