Hi, I’m Paola Mardo.




I make stories for radio and podcasts.


I am the host and creator of Long Distance, a new independent narrative podcast about life in the Filipino diaspora. (Subscribe for free here.)

My stories have aired on KCRW’s Good Food, PRI’s The World, KPCC’s The Frame, Offshore podcast, and more.

I provide audio editing and podcast production services for clients including Hulu, Slate, Vox, Wondery, and Western Sound.

I used to host and produce F This Weekly and was a producer on Democracy in Color.

I’ve also written things for Buzzfeed, LAist, and PRI and produced creative projects like this interactive audio fiction project and Voice Memo, a podcast and newsletter.
