Hi there!

I'm Lauren Hansen, a multimedia journalist specializing in the transformation of digital media. I am the creator and producer of three podcasts for The Week: Seven-Minute Explainers, Seven-Minute Opinions, and This Week I Learned with Lauren Hansen. 

As the executive editor of multimedia at TheWeek.com, I'm in charge of all the visuals, so I make the site look good. Often, when I can't find the *perfect* photo, I create an illustration (like Carrie above, or the Trump photo on the writing page) that fits. 

In addition to photo editing and podcasting, I also manage the The Week's video production, edit our photo blog Captured, and write features on history, science, arts and culture, lifestyle, and the inspiring and often hidden women of the past.
