Summer Internship: Darian Woods

NPR Planet Money

Darian Woods currently interns at NPR’s Planet Money, a biweekly American podcast and blog centered on the economy. He writes blog posts, pitches new story ideas, and “spends a surprising amount of time workshopping the perfect tweet.”

Darian credits his first year at the Goldman School with preparing him for this internship: Professor Jesse Rothstein introduced him to the American tax and transfer system; The Economics & Public Policy class provided concrete examples of how people respond to incentives; Journalism & Social Change helped him understand how journalists think about social policy; and UC Berkeley professors helped demystify complex data and showed how stories relate to wider principles.
