Arwen Champion Nicks

Arwen Champion Nicks (@arwenn) is the managing producer of podcasts at KPCC and LAist. At the 2019 Third Coast Conference, Arwen will be part of a Panel Discussion all about new methods of intertwining documentary, fiction & story for - dare we say it - even truer stories.

She has been working in radio and/or podcasting for about a decade and has won awards for her work as producer, host, investigative editor, and reporter. Currently, as the department lead at KPCC, she is whatever a project needs her to be. Her focus is always on the listener experience no matter what role she plays in a project. If she wasn’t working in podcasts she would probably be writing queer rom-coms. You may also know her from her work on The Big One, Tell Them, I Am, The Sub Pop Podcast, How's Your Day or maybe for the time she tweeted every line to Thelma & Louise.


The Earthquake

About a year ago, producers at KPCC started discussing the inevitable major quake set to hit Los Angeles and wondered how they could get people to not just listen but really prepare. The Big One: Your Survival Guide is what they came up with.
