Margy Rochlin

Margy Rochlin is an award-winning print journalist who started in radio in the 80's when then-NPR producer Ira Glass asked her to contribute commentaries to Morning Edition. In 1991, they co-produced an eight-part series Liars, which Glass often cites as a precursor for This American Life, for which Rochlin was an original contributing editor. (Robert Altman borrowed dialogue from Liars for a key storyline in his Los Angeles mosaic Shortcuts.) Over the years, Rochlin has worked with radio producer greats: Glass, Jay Allison, Alix Speigel and Bob Carlson, host of KCRW's UnFictional. She lives in Los Angeles.
