Show Host

Lori Mortimer

I'm is the creator, host, and producer of Mementos. In late 2017, with no previous experience in audio-making or storytelling, I simply decided it would be a good idea to start a podcast. Then I learned how hard it was. Since then, I've studied the art and craft of podcasting, audio editing, interviewing, nonfiction storytelling, sound design, and podcast marketing. Through more classes and workshops than I can count, and the support found in online and in-person audio communities, I've stitched together the basic set of skills needed to get a show off the ground. It's taken a village to get me to the point where I consider myself a creator and podcaster. It's been a life-changing and affirming experience for me, which I am thankful to have had the privilege of experiencing.
