About Laila

LAILA OWEDA IS AN AUDIO PRODUCER AND CONSULTANT BASED IN NEW YORK CITY. SHE IS CURRENTLY SENIOR PODCAST PRODUCER FOR STORYCORPS BY NPR WHICH FEATURES STORIES OF THE HUMAN HEART. CANDID, UNSCRIPTED CONVERSATION BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE ABOUT WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT IN LIFE: LOVE, LOSS, FAMILY, FRIENDSHIP. LAILA FORMERLY HOSTED AND PRODUCED BUILDERS, A TECH AND MEDIA-CENTRIC PODCAST WITH BETAWORKS STUDIOS, AND HAS SERVED AS SOUND DESIGNER/EDITOR/PRODUCER FOR THE LIKES OF SHE’S ALL FAT AND THE AWARD WINNING NAKED BEAUTY PODCAST. SHE IS ONE OF THE FIRST (BRIC) BROOKLYN FREE SPEECH RADIO-CERTIFIED COMMUNITY PRODUCERS. LAILA BELIEVES IN THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF STORYTELLING, CONSTANTLY CONSIDERS WHETHER DECISIONS SERVE THE STORY ARC, AND FIRMLY BELIEVES NOTHING CAN REPLACE CAREFUL ARTICULATION AND HAND EDITING DURING THE MIX/MASTER PHASE.

LAILA WAS RAISED IN THE "SUNSHINE CITY" OF ST. PETERSBURG, FL AND IS A GRADUATE OF ECKERD COLLEGE. OTHER PASSIONS INCLUDE ORGANIZING FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE CAUSES, TRAVELING, KNAFEH AND PETTING DACHSHUNDS. SHE WROTE THIS PAGE IN THIRD PERSON SO SHE CAN’T BE ACCUSED OF IMMODESTY, WHICH IS THE SAME REASON EVERYONE WRITES BIOS IN THIRD PERSON. EITHER THAT OR THEY ARE SO SUCCESSFUL THEY HAVE PEOPLE TO DO IT FOR THEM. WHICH COULD ALSO BE THE CASE FOR LAILA. WE MAY NEVER KNOW.
