Mallory Yu is a producer, editor, and director for NPR’s All Things Considered. In addition to working on daily news stories, she’s doing her best to bring her love of nerdy pop culture and science fiction/fantasy to the show, through creator interviews on the show or her own reporting. As a queer Chinese-American, she’s especially interested in exploring the intersection of identity, race, and pop culture and can often be found ranting about the lack of nuanced representation of POC in all forms of media. In her spare time, she’s reading comics, working on her next cosplay, and dreaming about upcoming travels. Her Twitter handle is @mallory_yu.
