Andrea Seabrook (born 1972) is an American radio reporter who formerly worked for NPR. She began hosting weekend broadcasts of that organization's signature news magazine All Things Considered on September 29, 2007, after six years of primarily reporting on the United States Congress for the same outlet. She replaced Debbie Elliott, who traded places with Seabrook and moved to becoming NPR's Congressional reporter.[1]

Seabrook received a bachelor's degree in biology from Earlham College in 1996. While at Earlham, Seabrook got involved with Earlham's college radio station, WECI. She went on to study Latin American literature at the UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) in Mexico City.[1]

Seabrook began reporting for NPR in 2001, after working on Anthem, an NPR music program, and working in the Mexico Bureau and provided fill-in coverage of Mexico and Central America. She then returned to NPR headquarters in Washington, and worked with NPR's Radio Expeditions series, before she shifted to Morning Edition."[1]

In July 2012, Seabrook left NPR and has started a project called DecodeDC, with a partnership with SoundCloud, whose aim is to “decipher Washington's Byzantine language and procedure, sweeping away what doesn't matter so listeners can focus on what does".[2] The project was funded in part by a $100,724 Kickstarter campaign.

In September, 2012, DecodeDC moved to the Mule Radio Podcast Syndicate. In November 2013, DecodeDC was acquired by E.W. Scripps.
