Amy Martin is the founder and executive producer of Threshold, a podcast and public radio program. Each season, Threshold takes a deep dive into one story of pivotal change in the natural world. The first season of Threshold told the story of the American bison. Season two takes listeners to all eight countries of the Arctic to learn about climate change through the eyes of people who live in the polar north.
Under Amy's leadership, Threshold has received a national Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio Television Digital News Association, in addition to awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, the Overseas Press Club, the Montana Broadcasters Association and more. Threshold has also been included in best-of lists by Outside Online, High Country News, Bello Collective, and The Philadelphia Enquirer. Amy’s stories have been heard on NPR’s All Things Considered, PRI’s The World, Here and Now, and other national outlets, and she’s been invited to present her work at the Arctic Frontiers conference in Tromsø, Norway, the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital, TEDx at the University of Montana, and at a variety of universities around the country. In 2016, she was selected for the Scripps Fellowship in Environmental Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Amy was raised on an Iowa farm and has lived in Missoula, Montana since 1999.
