Emily Prokop

Emily Prokop earned a journalism degree from Southern Connecticut State University and has worked in newspapers, journals, and even as a puzzle editor, but she has always enjoyed collecting weird knowledge and sharing it with her less enthusiastic friends and coworkers. She was fortunate enough to be able to merge her talents for trivia and podcasting when she launched The Story Behind podcast in 2016 and followed it up with a book in 2018. She and her husband, two children, and two cats live in Connecticut.
