Charlotte Jusinski, Host

Charlotte Jusinski has been the editor of El Palacio, the official magazine of the State of New Mexico’s Department of Cultural Affairs, since July 2019. Born and raised in New Jersey, she has a background mostly full of theater, journalism, and controlling unruly dogs—a combination of skills that she believes makes her uniquely suited to host a podcast. After studying creative writing with a concentration in poetry at the College of Santa Fe, she filled various roles at the Santa Fe Reporter before moving to El Palacio. Through her work at the magazine and Encounter Culture, Charlotte hopes to illuminate lesser-known stories of New Mexico through the multifaceted lens of the state’s vibrant cultural institutions. She lives in Santa Fe.
