More often than not, the producer behind those exceptional tapes was Cali Alpert. Cali was and remains the most soulful of our exceptionally talented tape producers. Her work beats with a singular emotional heart—the warmth, intimacy and empathy she brings to her stories has helped bring our show to life in the most unexpected ways.
