Hi, I’m Paola Mardo.




I am a podcast host and producer.


I am the host, producer, and creator of Long Distance, a podcast about stories in the Filipino diaspora. It was selected as 1 of 6 shows out of over 6,000 applications from more than 100 countries to be part of the inaugural Google Podcasts creator program with PRX. It has been featured in Fast Company, Rappler, Apple Podcasts’ New and Noteworthy, Spotify, Bello Collective’s 100 Outstanding Podcasts of 2018, and more.

I produce radio and podcast stories for shows like KCRW’s Good Food, PRI’s The World, KPCC’s The Frame, and Offshore. I write things for outlets like Buzzfeed, PRI, and (the old) LA Weekly.

Want to work with me or hire me?

I am available for podcast consultation, production, and hosting. I also do workshops, events, and speaking engagements. Get in touch.
