Programming Advisor, Independent Producer (Radio)
Lu first thought of producing radio when she was working a stressful and boring job at a huge cable television channel. Often, she listened to the radio and thought, that sounds like a lot more fun, so she jumped ship. Lu produced her first radio story for Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen. It was about an artist who sent the sound of vaginal contractions into deep space to communicate with aliens. She immediately became a regular contributor. Her work has also been heard on All Things Considered, Day to Day, Radio Lab, This American Life and Weekend America. She has been honored by the American Women in Radio & Television; the international competition New York Festivals, the literary magazine The Missouri Review and the Third Coast International Audio Festival.
