Jaye McAuliffe

Jaye McAuliffe is a freelance journalist specializing in public radio. As We Must Ignite’s producer, she records most of the show’s sounds and interviews and mixes them together. She also records random noises in her free time, likes listening to old radio broadcasts, and is the kind of person who argues that everything you can hear is music. In short, she is a complete audio nerd. In addition to We Must Ignite, she edits Just Shoot It, a podcast about how to be a director in the film industry.
