Emma Jacobs is an independent, multimedia journalist based in Montreal.

I worked in the newsrooms of WNYC and WHYY and traveled to the French island of La Réunion as NPR's Above the Fray fellow in 2015. These days, I contribute regularly to radio broadcasters including NPR, PRI's The World, and Marketplace. I have produced and reported for podcasts including ESPN's 30 for 30, Life of the Law, and Audible’s Pitch.

My writing has appeared in publications including The Washington Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer and CityLab. My work has received support from The Nation Institute and the Fund for Investigative Journalism.
