Senior Producer, Keith Anstead

Meet Keith Anstead from Washington D.C., senior producer, project manager, and host of episode 2 for the Good School. podcast. While working on this episode, The Application, he found it interesting how mysterious and confusing the admissions process is. ⁠

Keith’s career goals are to produce or direct local television news. Thanks to his own travels around the world, he created a podcast called The Social Media Hermit, which won an honorable mention in NPR’s student podcast challenge!⁠

Watch the video below to learn more about Keith and why he wanted to be part of this project. This video was made just one year after the start of the Pandemic.
