I’m Niki Ackermans, 27 years old and the host of Stories Your Granny Never Told. I originally started podcasting to record my grandarent’s stories and it just snowballed from there. I’ve learned so much from my show, sometimes old people really are wiser! If I’m not chatting with grandmas I’m acting like one; I love to knit, birdwatch, drink tea, and talk to my cat. My day job though, is being a biologist. I am a huge science nerd who is fascinated by everything biology. I will definitely bring up gross facts over dinner because science is just too cool to pass up.
I grew up between the US and Europe and you can hear it in my accent, but right now I’m living in NYC!
