Carmen Baskauf

Producer, Where We Live

Carmen Baskauf is a producer for Connecticut Public Radio's news-talk show Where We Live, hosted by Lucy Nalpathanchil. She has also contributed to The Colin McEnroe Show.

Carmen produces shows on a wide variety of topics for Where We Live; she especially loves producing shows about science and history. Some highlights include producing a full hour about menstruation (recipient of a national PRNDI award) and meeting a real-live glowing axolotl in studio for a show on bioluminescence and biofluorescence.

In 2020, Carmen and Where We Live host Lucy Nalpathanchil received a national Gracies Award from the Alliance for Women in Media for their conversation with a Connecticut mother and her trans son.

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, Carmen now lives in New Haven, Connecticut. She has a B.A. in History from Yale University, where she studied nationalist movements in 20th-century North Africa and the Middle East.

In her free time, Carmen likes reading about science, playing bridge, and learning new languages.
