Amy Martin is the founder and executive producer of Threshold, a podcast and public radio show that specializes in making complex environmental topics personal, immediate and real. Each season, Threshold explores one story of pivotal change from the natural world. Season one was focused on the American bison; season two will take listeners to the Arctic. The Montana Broadcasters Association named Threshold “Best Non-Commercial Radio Program of the Year” in June 2017.
In addition to producing Threshold, Amy files stories for NPR’s All Things Considered, PRI’s The World, Here and Now, and other radio outlets. In 2016, she was selected for the Scripps Fellowship in Environmental Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Amy has been invited to give presentations about her work at the International Wildlife Film Festival, at her her alma mater, Augustana College, and on the TEDx stage. She was raised on an Iowa farm and has called Missoula, Montana home since 1999.
