Natalie Bencivenga comes on Marta On The Move Podcast to offer advice on some tough dating questions, and tell us what is hip and happening in Pittsburgh this summer! She works for The Pittsburgh Post Gazette and runs the SEEN column of the newspaper along with her advice column, Ask Natalie. This is the shortened version of our podcast because we chatted well over 3 hours, it was so much fun! We had such a great time talking about what we love about our city. She is one of the most down to earth people I have met, and has an amazing style that is all her own! Check out her column in the paper, and feel free to ask her anything about what is on your mind!

A big thank you to the people who messaged me about questions they wanted answered during the podcast. Shout out’s to Alberto Benzaquen, Eric Toal, and Disco Stu.
Natalie Bencivenga is the SEEN editor for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Her weekly Monday column documents Pittsburgh social life in all its diversity.

She aims to broaden the reach of SEEN by expanding the kinds of events the Post-Gazette covers.
In addition to reporting on the city’s social scene, Natalie co-hosts the Post-Gazette’s weekly lifestyle Web show “Setting the SEEN” and regularly contributes segments to KDKA Radio and KDKA-TV’s morning television program “Pittsburgh Today Live.” Natalie also pens “Ask Natalie”: The Post-Gazette’s weekly advice column. Her next project includes launching a vegan blog aptly titled “VegHeads” on PG Plate.
