CREW

Karin Heimdahl – CREATOR

Karin was listening to the amazing Love & Luck in December of 2018 and suddenly an idea popped into her head – an audio drama in voicemails between two long-distance friends. The idea grew, and all of a sudden it was set to be a full-cast weekly-release audio drama podcast set in two timelines. So what was supposed to be a small, simple project ended up quite large and complex, but oh, so much fun!

For Y2K, Karin writes, directs, edits, produces and does graphic design.

In the year 2000, Karin studied theatre directing in London. Parts of this story are inspired by real events, others are completely made up. She won’t tell you which are what.
