Manoush is co-founder of Stable Genius Productions, a media company with a mission to help people navigate personal and global change. StableG uses podcasts as a lab to test new ways journalists can educate, entertain, and inspire through narrative. Their first project is ZigZag: a podcast about changing the course of capitalism, journalism, and women’s lives.
Investigating how technology is transforming humanity is Manoush’s passion and expertise. In 2017, she wrote a book, Bored and Brilliant: How Spacing Out Can Unlock Your Most Creative Self (St. Martin’s Press) and gave a TED Talk about surviving information overload and the “Attention Economy.” She is one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business for 2018.
Before founding StableG, Manoush created, hosted, and was managing editor of Note to Self at WNYC Studios, which the Academy of Podcasters named Best Tech Podcast of 2017. She’s won numerous awards, include The Gracie in 2014 and 2018 for Best Radio Host. She’s especially proud of the Webby her team won in 2018 for The Privacy Paradox, an interactive digital project about personal data.
