Morning Edition and Insight Producer
Cody Drabble learned to love public radio growing up in San Francisco with KQED on every morning during breakfast. He graduated from UCLA in 2007 with a degree in history and public policy. Drabble moved to Sacramento to earn his J.D., graduating from the McGeorge School of Law in 2010.
After practicing law for a few years, Drabble realized he couldn’t bill his hours of legal work without an episode of “This American Life,” “Planet Money,” or “Fresh Air” playing in the background. In 2012, he decided to go back to school for journalism. He joined the Sacramento News & Review as an editorial intern and freelance contributor in 2013, covering any fascinating story including new legislation, clean energy policy, emerging artists, local musicians, major crimes, and rattlesnake wranglers.
Drabble joined Capital Public Radio’s “Insight with Beth Ruyak” team in January 2014, helping find topics, booking guests, and conducting research. In March, he was brought on as a special project producer for Amy Quinton’s series about wildfires in California.
When Drabble isn’t at Capital Public Radio he spends his time hiking with his schipperke and watching the San Francisco Giants.
