Jared Marcelle got his start in audio storytelling as an assistant producer for WNYC’s Radio Rookies program in 2016. Later, as a member of the WNYC’s narrative unit, he reported on youths impacted by the juvenile justice system for the duPont-Columbia award-winning podcast Caught, including a story about Z, who was incarcerated at age 16. Jared is a Crown Heights native and self-described “sneaker head,” collecting shoes for as long as he can remember. He also likes to deconstruct dark themes in Disney movies, cook and cheer for New York sports teams.
