Molly Segal is an independent radio journalist based in Banff, Alberta. Her documentaries and reports on environment and science air on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s national radio programs — including Quirks & Quarks, Ideas, Tapestry and The World This Weekend — as well as WHYY’s The Pulse and WBUR/NPR’s Here & Now. Molly has worked for CBC Radio/TV, stationed across Canada. Her work takes her to remote mountains looking for grizzlies, counting miniscule snails in ancient hot springs and observing paleontologists looking for 500-million-year-old fossils. In the field, bear spray is often as important as her mic and recorder. Molly is a 2019-2020 Knight Science Journalism fellow at MIT.
