Sarika D. Mehta, originally from Chicago’s suburbia, loves music, dance, and all that jazz.

She’s been a producer with the APA Compass radio collective, founded and hosted the Intersections Radio podcast, anchored the KBOO Evening News, and served as a producer for Alice Wong‘s Disability Visibility Project podcast. In 2016, she was a New Voices Scholar with the Association of Independents in Radio (AIR). Currently she is the host and founder of the radio show, Diaspora Blues Radio, where she nerds out with her favorite musicians. 

Her fascination with languages led her to the worlds of Sign Language Interpreting and journalism for the ears. 

She is a lover of lutes, most especially the ukulele and the guitar. A busy mama of two sweet boys, she’s been known to make stuffed animals out of fuzzy yarn and excellently patterned socks.
