Shahla Farzan

Shahla is a scientist and freelance radio producer. She recently received her Ph.D. in ecology from the University of California-Davis, where she studied the mysterious world of native bee biology.

Shahla first caught the radio bug as a world music host for WMHC, the oldest college radio station operated exclusively by women. Since then, she has worked at several NPR affiliates across the country, including Capital Public Radio in Sacramento and KBBI in Homer, Alaska. When she’s not producing audio stories, you can find Shahla sifting through treasures at the flea market or buried in a good book.
