A proud native of the Second City, producer Jenny Lawton joined Studio 360 in 2007. Since then, she's produced the show's American Icons specials on the Disney parks and I Love Lucy, lots of stories in the Aha Moments series, and a portrait of the Japanese tea ceremony from Kyoto. She also serves as the managing editor of studio360.org and coordinates the show's internship program. Jenny started recording interviews as a Watson Fellow in India and Spain, researching the origins of flamenco dance. She cut her teeth in journalism at Chicago Public Radio, where she filed stories on culture, politics, technology, and the environment for WBEZ as well as NPR's Morning Edition and PRI's The World, among other programs. Jenny was awarded a USC-Annenberg/NEA Arts Journalism Fellowship, and lectures about radio and sound design at NYU and her alma mater, Kenyon College.
All Apologies ... to Erin

A couple weeks ago, Studio 360 featured the good works of David Ellis Dickerson — former Hallmark greeting card employee gone solo. He takes commissions at his blog, Greeting Card Emergency. He has a real gift for making greeting cards for sticky situations: like for when you go to your friend’s house for a party and then break their toilet.
Little did we realize we were sitting on a situation of our own:
We're hoping you can help us out with another emergency. In the credits of that very same episode of our show, we forgot to list Erin Calabria, our super hard-working Production Assistant. She hasn't mentioned it, because she's a mensch like that. And we wish we could say this is the first time we've made a dumb oversight — hopefully, it's the last. We'd like to give Erin (and others) a card that shows we noticed the gaffe and we're sorry and we appreciate them.
He came to our rescue:
Thank you, David. And thank you, Erin, for sharing your greatness with us.
