Podcasting, Writing, Photography, and Film

Hi, I’m Chris Higgins. I make videos, produce podcasts, record sound, take professional headshots, and write articles. You can hire me for any of these. You may know me from the Primary Ride Home Podcast, my writing for Mental Floss, or from This American Life. If you’d like to hear what I’m up to, please sign up for my email list.

In the past few years, I’ve made a bunch of videos for independent artists working on Kickstarter and Patreon. Want to talk about working on a project together? Use the contact form or find me on Twitter. (My DMs are open.)

I’m also a freelance writer, podcaster, and radio reporter. I’ve reported stories for This American Life, The Atlantic, Mental Floss, The Week, Business Insider (sorry!), The Magazine, Oregon Business Magazine, Aquarium Fish, The Portland Mercury, The Techmeme Ride Home, and probably a lot that I’m forgetting.

I’ve written, consulted on, shot for, and appeared in some documentaries: Access, Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters, The Lost Arcade, This is Not a Conspiracy Theory, The Adults in the Room, and The Pull. I also have a pile of projects in development. When they’re out, you better believe I’ll toot that horn right here.

In a past life, I developed iPhone and iPad games. I also served as Time Travel Consultant for Ransom Riggs, helping him define some of the time-related “rules” behind the original Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children book. I am available for this work too, but I should warn you that it’s extremely costly, and you must bring your own weapons.
