Amy Martinis the founder and executive producer of Threshold, a podcast and public radio program. Each season, Threshold takes a deep dive into one story of pivotal change in the natural world. In 2017, Outside Online named Threshold one of the best new podcasts of year, and the Montana Broadcasters Association awarded it the best non-commercial radio program of the year.
The first season of Threshold told the story of the American bison. The second season takes listeners to all eight countries of the Arctic.

In 2016, she was selected for the Scripps Fellowship in Environmental Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder. In 2014, she was chosen to give a TEDx talk at the University of Montana.
