My name is Amanda Beland and I’m a producer and storyteller living in Somerville, Massachusetts. I have a background in print journalism, but my true passion is audio reporting. I’m currently producing local All Things Considered programming for Boston’s WGBH News. My byline has appeared in outlets in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine, including MetroWest Daily News, WERS 88.9, Manchester’s Union Leader, Foster’s Daily Democrat and Seacoast Online. I have a passion for traveling and am on a mission to visit all 49 states with my car Walter and my best friend. It turns out – getting a car to Hawaii is pretty tricky! If I’m not strapped to a microphone or looking at an atlas – I’m probably holding a film camera or forcing my experimental baked goods on you.
