KJ Shepherd

Hey there! I’m KJ Shepherd. I am a historian, editor, researcher, and writer. I’m based out of Austin, Texas.

I put out the poetry and art zine you know i don’t know. I edit, produce, and do voice-over for the Ask Any Buddy podcast. I used to the social media and edit special series for Lady Science magazine. You can find more of my art, poetry, and writing at Protean, Contingent, Rejection Letters, HAD, Okay Donkey, and Hobart Pulp. You can also hear me every so often on The Nostalgia Trap.

I researched standardized testing (and why we keep doing it even though we hate it) for a long time. I was also a union organizer, community college teacher, an Excel jockey, and a transcriptionist at various points in my life.
