Michael Katzif

In addition to being a musician and music writer, Michael Katzif is a producer and keeper of all things podcast at NPR. He came to NPR as the intern for All Songs Considered, where he obsessively picked over the onslaught of music and wrote about unsigned artists for the site's daily Open Mic (now Second Stage) feature. He currently produces a handful of podcasts and music content for NPR Music and is a frequent contributor to NPR's Song of the Day and NPR's jazz blog, A Blog Supreme.

When not at NPR, Katzif stays distracted with various creative endeavors and musical exploits, documented on his Web site, Hello Come In. He recently finished a long-distance collaboration with friends on a year-long project that produced an EP of original music every month.
