About Emily

Emily Shaw crafts award-winning podcasts that engage listeners. She got her start conducting a rogue oral history project in Vietnam in 2013, and went on to study audio documentary and podcasting at Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies, Women’s Audio Mission, Writing Pad, UnionDocs, and SoundPath.

Emily honed her interviewing and sound design chops as the host and producer of Cozy Boat, an intimate, music-infused podcast about creativity and passion. Since then, she’s produced original audio content for YouTube, Google, Meta, Spotify, Headspace, Gimlet, and more. In her free time, she enjoys recording sounds like the Golden Gate Bridge hum, and making audio art.

In previous lives, Emily scaled Operations as Employee #1 of a mobile app startup, and taught on four continents.
