Introducing Southern Wonder with Allison Braden

Photo of Allison BradenAllison Braden began her career in curiosity early. As a child, she insisted on knowing what was beyond the universe, and she hasn’t stopped wondering since. Until scientists figure that out, she’s focused on curiosities closer to home, especially literature, culture, geography, and history. On Southern Wonder, she’ll learn about these topics and more with Charlotteans who actually know what they’re talking about.

Allison applied to Georgia Tech with the intention of studying computer science, but she couldn’t resist the pull of the humanities and switched majors before even arriving on campus. She graduated with a degree in international affairs and Spanish. Since then, she’s traveled to Venezuela to observe an election, lived in northern Bangladesh, and traipsed around Mongolia, Siberia, and the American South. She is still figuring out how to get paid to travel and ask questions.
