The Explainers: The golden age of nonfiction video and explanatory journalism

Video production informed by science journalism

About Eli Kintisch

I've covered climate and scientific research, medical science, environmental policy and much else. As a video, digital and print journalist. 

  • Producing for Scripps News

    As a producer for Scripps News I created television segments on science, medicine, environment and technology for the fledgling news network.

  • Producing video for Vox, PBS and more

    During my transition from magazine writing about science to video, I collaborated with top brands and grew my skills.

  • Climate science and art at MIT

    I became the only journalist to receive the prestigious MIT Knight fellowship twice. During the first year I created a juried art exhibition on climate impacts called To Extremes. During the second I taught a class at RISD on tablet apps and designed an augmented reality app to explore sea level rise.
