Hi, I’m Andrea Gutierrez.

I’m a reporter and podcast producer in Los Angeles. 

I’m drawn to sto­ries at the inter­sec­tions of iden­ti­ty, arts, and culture.

A long­time sto­ry­teller with work in print, dig­i­tal, and audio, I most recent­ly made pod­casts at NPR, where I pro­duced and report­ed for TED Radio Hour, It’s Been a Minute, and Plan­et Mon­ey. I got my start in radio pro­duc­ing and report­ing for The Frame, a dai­ly radio show on NPR sta­tion KPCC. Past bylines include BBC World Ser­vice, CBC, LAist, The Cal­i­for­nia Sun­day Mag­a­zine, Mar­fa Pub­lic Radio, Bitch, make/shift, Huizache, and the Los Ange­les Review of Books.

My work has won awards and hon­ors from the Pod­cast Acad­e­my, Los Ange­les Press Club, Nation­al Asso­ci­a­tion of His­pan­ic Jour­nal­ists, NLGJA: The Asso­ci­a­tion of LGBTQ Jour­nal­ists, and KCR­W’s 24-Hour Radio Race. I am an Arthur F. Burns Fel­low, RIAS Berlin Com­mis­sion Fel­low, IWMF Gwen Ifill Fel­low, and AIR New Voic­es Schol­ar. In a pre­vi­ous life, I spent many years advis­ing and men­tor­ing stu­dents at pub­lic uni­ver­si­ties through­out California.

A first-gen­er­a­tion col­lege grad­u­ate and life­long South­ern Cal­i­forn­ian, I received a B.A. in Ger­man stud­ies at Scripps Col­lege and an MFA in cre­ative non­fic­tion at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, River­side. I’m an alum of the Poyn­ter Lead­er­ship Acad­e­my for Diver­si­ty in Media and the Tran­som Trav­el­ing Workshop.

Here’s some of the shows I’ve worked on
