Deputy editor, Wired
As deputy editor at Wired, Adam Rogers edits features for the print magazine and manages the editing of longform stories for the digital edition. Rogers’ feature “The Angels’ Share,” a detective story about a mysterious fungus that lives on whiskey fumes, won the 2011 AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Award for magazine writing and was the inspiration for his New York Times bestselling book Proof: The Science of Booze, which won the 2015 IACP prize and was shortlisted for the PEN/EO Wilson science writing award. By some measures, Rogers' article on the neuroscience of why some people saw the color of a picture of a dress differently than others was the second most-read thing on the Internet in 2015.
Rogers was also a writer and correspondent for Wired Science, a television show co-produced by the magazine and PBS in 2007. He was also the host of The Storyboard, a Wired podcast. Prior to joining Wired, Rogers was a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and before that he was a writer and reporter at Newsweek.
