About Stephanie

Stephanie Lepp is an artist and producer whose work strives to hold up a mirror — inviting us to grow from what we see. She’s the producer of Reckonings, a podcast that tells the stories of people who’ve shifted their political worldview, transcended extremism, and made other kinds of transformative change. Her latest work is Deep Reckonings, a series of explicitly-marked deepfakes that imagine Mark Zuckerberg, Brett Kavanaugh, and other public figures having a reckoning.
