Sharif Youssef is pretty new to the radio game. He just graduated with a degree in cognitive science and focused on decision-making and choice architecture. Before joining 99pi, he interned at the TED Radio Hour and produced for Weekend and Morning Edition at NPR. He has spent much of his life between West Liberty, West Virginia and Alexandria, Egypt. In his spare time, he cooks, stares longingly into the distance, and makes music with Wendy and the Bear. Thai food is his passion, slow lorises his downfall. With any luck, he’ll be reincarnated as a bonobo.
