Advice from Mom

Editor and Producer from Episode 4 to series finale 

2016, 2017, 2018

Advice from Mom is equal parts mental-health-advice-column and motherly love. The podcast features listener letters, the advice and life stories of Dr. Momma B (AKA Elizabeth Skibinski-Bortman, PhD – a small-town family therapist “on a mission to mother a mentally healthy world.”) and guests like Esther Perel, Dolores Huerta, Michaela Watkins, Ruth Pointer, and Emily Chang. Host (and daughter of Dr. Momma B) Rebecca Garza-Bortman brings a critical and comical angle to the show, keeping her mom on her toes with attentive follow-up questions and, occasionally, improvised musical aphorisms. 

As Producer/Editor/Sound Designer I:

  • Guided a deeply collaborative work process with the host who was also a first-time podcaster

  • Developed episode arcs, season structures, and special series

  • Structured and Produced Interviews

  • Script edited the host and punch-up edited as needed

  • Story edited all segments for thoughtful, consistent, high quality episodes.

  • Multi-Track Episode Editing to build 

  • Sound Designed and Rough Mixed Episodes and Promos

  • Edited ad scripts and copy for funny musical jingles

​AFM was featured on iTunes New and Noteworthy, on NPR’s The Big Listen, and got this great review from The Constant Listener who said "The high-wire act of creating a show that is as insightful as it is entertaining is no small feat, but this mother-daughter pair pull it off with seeming ease. Add to all of that the production is just tip-top... It is an experience quite unlike any other."
