Katie’s admittedly third person Bio

Born and raised on the mean streets of New York City’s Upper West Side, Katie Halper is a writer, podcast host and video correspondent. She hosts her creatively named podcast and WBAI radio show “The Katie Halper Show,” and co-hosts the Rolling Stone podcast Useful Idiots with Matt Taibbi. Katie has interviewed people like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Glenn Greenwald, Briahna Joy Gray, the hosts of Chapo Trap House and the late Erica Garner. Her writing has appeared in New York Magazine, The Guardian,  Rolling Stone, FAIR, Comedy Central, The Nation Magazine and more. She’s appeared on MSNBC and Fox News, where she defended Ilhan Omar and explained that AIPAC doesn’t reflect most Jews. The National Review called Katie “cute and some what brainy,” though they obviously don’t like her politics.

Katie co-produced Tim Robbins’s film Embedded, (Venice Film Festival, Sundance Channel); Estela Bravo’s Free to Fly (Havana Film Festival, LA Latino Film Festival); was outreach director for The Take, Naomi Klein/Avi Lewis documentary about Argentine workers (Toronto & Venice Film Festivals, Film Forum); co-directed New Yorkers Remember the Spanish Civil War, a video for Museum of the City of NY exhibit, and wrote/directed viral satiric videos including Jews/ Women/ Gays for McCain.

Katie will be releasing her award-winning film, COMMIE CAMP, a documentary about Camp Kinderland, the summer camp the right loves to hate.

  1. Dear Katy, I agree (regarding your piece in TPM)! I do not know how I ever missed you before now. However, that has been rectified, Baruch HaShem! I followed their link and got here. I will be forever grateful to Josh for that! You are a riot! I surveyed your brilliantly twisted mind and adore it. I will be back to read it in depth. Plus I saw your photo (googled it -CUTEY!!! Oh, how sexist of me. I cannot help it.) Keep it up. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler rule! Truly women are funnier and I love it. Wish I had met one like that. I might not be divorced now. Sabras do not have a goo d sense of humour. All the best!
