Sweetbitter

A collaboration with Alyse Knorr Ellie Brigida (of Lez Hang Out fame) about the first woman from antiquity and the o-g lesbian (or rather, where the word “lesbian” in a modern context comes from).

Sweetbitter delves into the truth and controversy of Sappho; her life, the Isle of Lesbos and her relevance today. In our first season, we were featured on Apple’s New & Noteworthy, Stitcher’s Women in Pop Culture and PocketCast’s Remarkable Women. At our peak, we made it to the top 10 for history in many countries — including the US, Canada and Australia. We are currently one of the top 1.5% podcasts for listener-ship globally.

We’ve been featured on Buffering the Vampire Slayer, the Bechdel Cast, Let’s Talk About Myths Baby, Lez Hang Out and more.

Each episode, we’ve also written and performed a song to one of Sappho’s fragments.

We are currently an independent production, hosted on the ACast Network and are supported via our generous patrons.

The Flame - a podcast musical

The Flame tells the story of two women: Jamie (Ellie Brigida), an LGBTQ bar owner, and Sam (Jasmin Savoy Brown), the woman selling the building the bar inhabits, and the inevitable sparks that end up flying between them! With the help of her best friend, Heather (Leigh Holmes Foster), and bar regular Jo (Jenn Colella), can the residents of The Flame keep the bar alive? Or can Sam’s friend Mel (Valerie Rose Lohman) help her work through her complicated feelings about her father’s death and the building she grew up in before she makes a rash decision?

This is an original radio play produced by Lez Hang Out Productions. Part of the Broadway Podcast Network.

I am a part of the vocal ensemble and also assisted in the launch strategy for the podcast.

 

This was my first podcast, where we cover the Syfy Original series Battlestar Galactica and drink craft beer. Starting with my first co-host, Melia Rayner, this podcast was a great soft entry into podcasting – intentionally niche which gave me time to find my voice and hone my skills.

When I relocated to New York, I found a new co-host in Cayley Waldo, and took over the audio editing and production duties from beloved “Producer Tom”.

With 30k downloads, we have a small dedicated fanbase. We’ll be keeping the podcast going for the Battlestar Galactica “reboot” in 2022.

In the meantime, we’ve been keeping the podcast going with bonus content, and will be returning in 2021 on a monthly basis, to discuss the prequel series, Caprica.

Believable

Launch Consultant

I came on to assist in the launch of Narratively’s first podcast, Believable quite late in the piece. I developed their launch and partnership strategy and was able to facilitate a feature with WNYC Studios’ podcast, Snap Judgement, and built relationships for ad swaps with other podcasts.

I had creative input on the first couple of episodes of the show and helped develop podcast ideas and strategy for the future of the business.

Believable launched strongly for a first podcast, in the top 10% of podcasts for listener-ship.

In this role, I learned a lot about market entry strategy for podcasts along with how advertising works (and doesn’t).
