The Heart is about intimacy, bodies, gender, power dynamics and all the invisible things in the air between us, hosted by Kaitlin Prest and co-created alongside Mitra Kaboli. After bringing listeners stories for years, and earning a Peabody Award nomination in 2017, The Heart went on hiatus.
In 2019, Kaitlin formed Mermaid Palace, an audio company rooted in community, unapologetic artistic impulses and a commitment to centering queer voices. The Heart came back for a brand new season in January 2020.
I wrote and curated social media strategy, introduced new online engagement initiatives including ‘listening questions’ related to the series, and did on-going promotional outreach to create buzz online about the new launches from fellow audio creators to help the show reach new audience.
