When an artist and interviewer meet in a tiny boat, things can’t help but get a little personal…
“Crisp and also warm. A pleasure for the ears. It's great how Emily finds little elements of humanity that expose and endear the artists to us…Clear, articulate, warm timbre…” -Ezra C., Listener

"Emily has a knack for pulling great storylines out of heaps of captured content. Her fearless approach pairs perfectly with her commitment to excellence in the final product. She brings passion and humor to every situation and is a pleasure to work with." - Tyler Brown, Audio Creative Lead, Pandora
“Emily was a wonderful partner to the Internal Comms team here at Pandora. I had the pleasure of working with Emily on our internal podcast, and she brought so much structure and creativity to the platform.
She has an unparalleled ability to find interesting employee stories and shape the content she captures in a truly compelling way.
Not only that, but the podcast emails had a higher open rate and more than twice the clickthrough rate of our regular Internal Comms emails. And every Slack post introducing a new episode got dozens of emoji responses from employees.
Emily’s an amazing storyteller and a fabulous colleague.” - Erin Farrell, Internal Communications Lead, Pandora

"Working with Emily on our podcast was an exceptional experience. She brought strong vision to a process that needed it, but did so in a collaborative and friendly way that left everyone she worked with feeling great about the project. Her reporting skills, her writing, her attention to detail on the sound and feeling of the piece were all top notch. In fact, as a music lover I have to say her music choices for our podcast were great. We loved working with Emily and happily recommend her to anyone, and we would absolutely work with her again on any future podcasting projects we have." - Bob Boster, President, Clear-Com
"About ten years ago, I was inducted into a secret society in my family. The ones who know, and the ones who protect. We are the guardians of the family. The bodies we put between them and Him.” - Lilia Vega

A narrative podcast that speaks to how messy, lonely, terrifying, and beautiful being human can be.
"As soon as I had the funding to do it, I hired Emily to be my editor because I knew she was passionate about my project AND that this passion meant she wouldn’t just tell me what I wanted to hear. Emily has helped me feel more confident in my work while thoughtfully helping me figure out how to make it better. She’s helped me face things that aren’t working even if I wanted to just skirt around them and because of that, the third season of my show is at a much higher caliber. No one has ever put in the thought and time to provide such thorough feedback, nor have they worked so hard to make sure our communication was working so I could get the most out of it.
You can’t really be your own editor. I know that now. And Emily has been the perfect editor for me - she knows how to get to the heart of what a story is about and cut the unnecessary fluff while retaining the special moments and sentiments that make a story come to life. In addition to editing my work, I’ve listened to and provided feedback to Emily on her other projects and have been amazed at how she balances heart with detail-oriented analytical dissection. As I write this testimonial, I wish she was editing it for me because she’d know how to help me end it.
Emily is a brilliant editor, storyteller, and human with incredible heart and an astounding work ethic." - Lily Sloane, Host & Producer, A Therapist Walks Into A Bar Podcast

"Emily is a fantastic podcast editor, and I highly recommend working with her. Before working with Emily my work lacked cohesion. Lots of good points were being made, but because I was so close to the material, I was having trouble tying everything back to one central idea... and generating a feeling of suspense. Emily helped me identify a) what I was trying to say, and b) how to be more effective in saying it." - Reuben Ly, Host & Producer, Working Sunday Podcast
