Podcast Episode

Queens Memory: Our Major Minor Voices

I produced and hosted this episode for the Queens Memory Podcast, the Queens Museum's Oral History show. This ten-episode season, "Our Major Minor Voices," shares stories from Queens' diverse Asian American communities. Each episode of this season featured a different community of Asian descent and was produced in both English and the native language of that community.

In this bonus episode, I interviewed Elias Ravin, the podcast's composer. We discussed the unique challenges of composing for podcasts, learned about his process as he respectfully incorporated elements of each culture’s music into the score, and asked the most important question of all: why are podcasts so obsessed with marimbas?

Our conversation is interwoven with Elias’s compositions so we can hear what he’s describing moment-to-moment. I assembled and edited the episode specifically so both people with music theory knowledge and those with none could enjoy it.

Podcast Series

Across the Pod

I produced, cohosted, and edited Across the Pod, a transatlantic pop-culture podcast that ran twice a week during seasons.

I managed all pre- and post-production for the podcast, including creating the show art, theme song (featured on the left), segment stings, and promotional materials. I managed the show’s production schedule, engineered remote recording sessions, and maintained the show’s RSS and social media.

In two seasons, we organically grew the audience to ~1k listens per episode and created connections with so many amazing listeners!

We ended the podcast in 2023 in order to make room for our other professional goals.

Emily Reeves

audio producer + storyteller

Hi, I'm Emily Reeves. I'm an award-winning audio producer, podcaster, and storyteller based in Brooklyn, NY.

I became an audio producer because I'm a true believer in the power of audio stories. I'm drawn to stories that have humor and nuance—ones that give us a window into something universal through a unique, personal narrative.
As a former performer and theatre artist, I spent years studying the art of captivating an audience’s attention and use this experience to create sound-rich and engaging audio pieces.

I'm a recent graduate of the Salt Institute for Documentary Stories, where I created a documentary about a Moby-Dick-inspired blues opera about heroin addiction. The piece won a Silver Award, the highest award for the category, for Best Student Documentary at the 2023 New York Festivals Radio Awards.
