David Kestenbaum

At this year’s festival, David explained how to take dangerously complicated, opaque stories and make them actually interesting, even exciting.

David Kestenbaum is a correspondent for NPR, covering science, energy issues and, most recently, the global economy for NPR’s multimedia project Planet Money. Since 1999 David has covered science’s discoveries and its darker side, including the Northeast blackout, the anthrax attacks and the collapse of the New Orleans levees. David has a Ph.D. in physics and has won awards from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Physical Society and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. (Mr. Kestenbaum’s performance and wardrobe was sponsored by Transom.org)
