Jonathan Mitchell is the creator and executive producer of the public radio podcast The Truth. He studied music composition at University of Illinois and Mills College, where he discovered a passion for telling stories with sound. Public radio happens to be a great place to do that, and over the past 15 years he's contributed a wide range of pieces—documentaries, fictional stories, non-narrated sound collages, and original music— to all sorts of programs: Radiolab, Studio 360, This American Life, Hearing Voices, Fair Game, The Next Big Thing, and All Things Considered, to name a few. His work has won many awards, including the Peabody, the Golden Reel, and the Gold Mark Time Award for Best Science Fiction Audio. He lives in New York City.
