Jeremy Petersen hails from the southeastern corner of Idaho, where he spent eight years at KISU in Pocatello serving in various capacities, including program director and producer/host of a daily music program. Prior to coming to OPB, career highlights included interviews with Wanda Jackson, Jill Sobule, Kelly Joe Phelps and Mike Doughty. (Laura Veirs and the Avett Brothers, among others, have since been added to the list.) He holds a bachelor's degree in psychology, for what that's worth, which he insists is not a lot, although he acknowledges it's more than an English degree (which is where his heart really was). Aside from music, he's into baseball, beat literature and beauty ('cause it equals truth). He plays the bass, with others when possible, and is married to Rachel. They're cat people.
