About Arielle

I got started in the podcast space in early 2017, when I founded a podcast recommendations newsletter called EarBuds Podcast Collective. EarBuds sends a weekly email that contains a theme and 5 podcast episodes on that theme, and each week is curated by a different person. EarBuds also puts out a weekly podcast episode along the same lines. 

I founded a podcast recording studio in West LA called Village Podcasting in 2018 and ran it until mid 2019. During this time, I learned a great deal about the podcasting landscape in Los Angeles. I held many happy hours and podcast-related events throughout the city. 

I got involved with Outlier Podcast Festival in mid 2018, at first as a speaker, and then as a co-producer and MC. Outlier is a three times / year event that focuses on showcasing indie podcasters throughout the country. It takes place in different cities each time. 

I worked for Castbox as an in-app curator and banner ads salesperson for over a year. During this time, I learned about the power of promotion via in-app curation. I then presented (and continue to present) on this topic at various events including Podcast Movement, PodThon, and more.

I am currently the Community Manager at SquadCast.FM, a remote recording software that focuses on podcasters' experiences and producing superior sound quality.

I host a podcast with my friend and co-host, Shira Moskowitz, called Counter Programming with Shira and Arielle. It focuses on any topic with the word "count" or "counter" in the title... countertops, Count Von Count, blood count, people counters (AKA the census), and more.

I am currently a student at Salt and am very interested in pursuing and voicing local stories. My interests in the reporting area include: transportation, geography, Americana, minor league baseball team names, weird history, and more.
