Thane Richards

Outernet
Publisher and COO

Thane Richard leads content strategy and business development at Outernet, a revolutionary company that delivers free information from space to every human on earth. Earlier, he founded a journalism project in Detroit called “Jaunt” that fused nonfiction stories with physical artifacts. Quartz hired him to cover the 2014 Indian general election. The largest election in human history, it took place over the course of six weeks.

Richard founded Dabba Radio while living in Mumbai, India. Dabba Radio was an online pirate radio network of news and current events. Indian FM stations still ban such content, he said.

In addition, Richard co-led a bicycle trip across the United States from the Atlantic to the Pacific with Bike and Build, tested fluid dynamics in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s renowned zero gravity plane, studied nautical science and led students aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer, and compiled land-use research on the Lazy E-L Ranch while working as a cowboy. He graduated with honors from Brown University in 2009 with a dual degree in economics and development studies. 

“My passion,” Richard said, “is for creating ways for people to consume information and developing innovative models for journalism or other critical media functions. I am passionate about writing; I am a drummer when I can be and rarely say no to a cheap plane ticket to anywhere.”
