Cadence Bambenek is a journalist, researcher, and editor interested in how science and technology intersect with power and culture, fact-checking for outlets including Popular Science and Rolling Stone.
She is also a co-founder of Hothouse, a media outlet covering climate solutions. Modeled after NPR’s Planet Money, Hothouse publishes investigative journalism about the climate:
"Most climate stories are doom and gloom. Hothouse is original climate journalism with a way to act. We dig into the evidence, figure out what works, and deliver the news to your inbox."
Hothouse’s original stories examine how to combat climate change, and what readers can do in their own lives.
A graduate of the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Cadence previously interned at Wisconsin State Journal, Business Insider, and Psychology Today, and did a brief spring in a social science research center at Columbia University, working on the Obama Presidency Oral History Project.
Calling Duluth, Minnesota her childhood home, Cadence loves pretty much anything having to do with the outdoors. When she's not writing, she can be found traveling, taking pictures, spending time with friends and family, or some combination of all three.
