This American Life: Shortcut


Shortcut is a web app from This American Life that makes it easy for listeners to share radio clips on social media.

I worked on many aspects of this project on both the front-end and back-end, along with a great team. After the initial Tow Center and Knight Foundation grants wrapped up and the rest of the team moved on, I stayed on for an additional phase to focus on mobile, to prepare for the public launch, and assist with data collection/analytics.
