About this project


By Staff

Extremely American is a podcast with original reporting by host and creator Heath Druzin, and editing by Morgan Springer. 

Extremely American is produced in partnership with Postindustrial Media, through grants provided by The Kendeda Fund and The Joyce Foundation. The Forbes Funds is the fiscal sponsor for this project. Boise State Public Radio is the exclusive public radio sponsor.

However, the editorial team produced the series independently and is solely responsible for the content.

Druzin’s reporting for this project took him throughout Idaho, Washington state, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin. 

At Postindustrial, we’re passionate about bringing you important stories you won’t find elsewhere. 

But because on-the-ground reporting is costly, we’d appreciate your support for this project. To contribute, click here and note your membership is to support Extremely American
