About the Podcast Team

Nahanni Rous

Nahanni Rous is the host and producer of Can We Talk. So far in this role, she has flown 10,000 feet above the Chesapeake Bay in the cockpit of a Cessna, chopped garlic in the London kitchen of a world-class chef and cookbook author, and witnessed a small riot at Judaism's holiest site, the Western Wall in Jerusalem. Most of the time, though, she is at her home office swimming in hours of tape, or recording vocal tracks under a blanket in her closet. Before helping to launch Can We Talk, Nahanni was a founding staff member of the media organization Just Vision, and a producer of Just Vision’s documentary film Encounter Point. Nahanni is also a fabric artist, amateur cellist, and mother. She lives in Washington, DC.
