Elena Hudgins Lyle – Host & Audio Producer
Elena Hudgins Lyle pursued a BA in Media Production for her love of radio, but somehow didn’t expect to fall for podcasts and audio storytelling — hard. Joining Inappropriate Questions in her third year of university kept her new passion fresh. Also while in school, she produced audio documentaries that were recognized by the National Campus and Community Radio Association Awards and the RTA TARA Awards. In her final year she worked as an associate producer for CBC Radio One’s Podcast Playlist and as program director at Ryerson University’s SpiritLive Radio. Elena hopes to continue exploring where audio can take her. In her downtime, she writes stories and songs. In her actual downtime, she enjoys books, bands, and interacting with other people’s dogs.
