About

 

Hello.

I’m a science & health reporter at WNYC, the NPR station in New York. At the moment I’m working for Radiolab, helping revisit and rethink some of their original episodes, like this one about Voyager, and this one about the Trolley Problem.

I have been reporting and producing for public radio for the past 15 years and have worked on staff at Radiolab, Marketplace, Weekend America and WNYC. My stories can be heard on NPR, the BBC, On The Media, Marketplace, CBC, Studio 360 and more. In 2012, I was a Soros Justice Media Fellow.

I am also on the faculty of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, where I love to teach audio/radio journalism.

You can email me at aaronczyk at wnyc dot org or follow me at @aronczyk, where I am wearing my glasses.

  1. Hi Amanda, I heard your story about little Joey, I had to leave the U.S. with my Son and do immune in Leuven Belgium. its new here, as of 2012, Professor Stefaan Van Gool was already doing it for 10 years using the patients tumor itself. Not why I’m contacting you, for the past year I’ve been investigating clinical trials in this country. 83% have no results posted about what happened to patients that entered these studies. I isolated 6 years in my stats. 1,797,089 people entered studies it those 6 years, 1,433,320 people are still unreported. NO RESULTS. According to Congressman Lance’s DC office, I managed to force the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking out and open to public comment. Only 9 days left as of the date of this message. Everything is posted on my website. http://www.fixcancernow.com That will take you to an instruction page, if you click on the home page button at the top, you see letters down the left side of the home page under my son’s picture, read the first letter I sent to the NIH, you’ll understand the magnitude of the problem in this country. A cure for anything will never be found if all the information is kept concealed about patient responses to experimental drugs. Not posting results within 12 months from the end of a trial is in Violation of Federal Law. When I inquired with the NIH and FDA, they both , especially the FDA admit to intentionally violating federal law. All the letters are there, read it for yourself.
    It would make a nice continuation to your story.

  2. I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard you reporting on cancer on WNYC — a serious subject with a dignified, eloquent voice! No uptick, no verbal fry, no studied pauses or trills, none of the moronic tics of the usual NPR female journalists. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your work, but especially for your civilized voice.
