How to Reach Me

About Me: Leslie Katz leads a team that explores the intersection of tech and culture, plus all manner of awe-inspiring science, from space to biology, AI to archaeology. As a former host of the CNET News Daily Podcast, she sometimes channeled Terry Gross and now uses her trained "podcast voice" to bully the automated software on customer support lines. Leslie was obsessed with online word games long before Wordle.
