About Me

  • I am a passionate podcaster and podcast listener. My show, The Story Behind, has more than 100 episodes and was nominated for The Academy of Podcasters’ Awards in 2017.
     
  • I love brainstorming ideas and talking about podcasting (I could do it for hours, if someone lets me). I love helping people craft their stories and messages in a way that keeps podcasting fun for them, while being able to spread their message to their ideal listeners.
     
  • When I started podcasting, I found I was one of the few who actually enjoyed editing and the craft of turning raw audio into a tight, informative podcast. I’ve had more than 10 years editing experience in print journalism, so this made perfect sense for me to be able to transfer those skills into audio.
     
  • I'm that friend who's always talking about something she heard on a podcast.

My Podcast

The Story Behind

I host a short, narrative-style history and trivia podcast called The Story Behind that covers the histories behind everyday objects.


Other Projects

Podcast Share

I run a Twitter account called Podcast Share. Every week, a different curator to take over the account every week to live-Tweet what they're listening to. This lets podcasters know their shows are being listened to in order to build a stronger indie-podcaster community.
