Get To Know Andy

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working? I listen to way too many podcasts and public radio. I can’t get enough news and true crime.

What’s one thing on your bucket list? I’d like to see the northern lights in person. One of these days I’ll get a jacket warm enough to brave the Alaska winter.

What’s your favorite book or podcast? Fresh Air, hosted by Terry Gross, is an amazing podcast on the air for over 35 years. She interviews the most eclectic group of people and you always learning something new.
