What is one thing you have accomplished with your podcast thus far that you are most proud of? 

Speaking for the missing…helping to get publicity out there so maybe one day they will be found.

What is one major milestone that you would like to accomplish through your podcast in the next year?

Focus on content first, the rest will come. 100% true.

What is one of the worst pieces of podcast-related advice you’ve ever received & why?

Morbidology, Mens Rea (both Ossa podcasts!)

Can you tell us about a time when you took a huge risk/did something you were scared to do, and it totally paid off?

How do you feel you’re making a positive impact and generating change through your podcast?

I think it’s important that younger women hear other women’s voices in podcasting.
