Executive Directors

Vienna Vendittelli

Vienna is in her second year of the Master of Public Policy program at the Munk School. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Studies and Sociology from Queen’s University. Last year, Vienna enjoyed creating episodes as a junior producer and social media director, which motivated her to become an executive director this year. Through her academic and professional experiences, Vienna has developed interests in urban, education, and intergovernmental policy. She loves remaining active, especially through swimming! Feel free to connect with her on LinkedIn.

Alex Gold-Apel

Alex is a 2nd year MPP student. He is from Montreal and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Urban Systems from McGill University. As a Junior Producer for BTH, he enjoyed interviewing guests and editing episodes. His main interests include Indigenous and energy policy as well as urban affairs. When he’s not on air, you can find him watching sports, talking about politics, on his bike or on Twitter.

Vienna and Alex are excited to bring you new content for Beyond the Headlines this year through meaningful public policy discussions by returning and new members of the BTH Team!
