Karin Heimdahl – CREATOR
Karin (she/her) 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, sound designs, produces, acts and does graphic design. Basically, whatever isn’t credited to someone else? Karin’s probably doing it.
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.
When Karin is not creating audio drama she is a voice actor, podcaster and drama teacher turned project manager. She produces and co-hosts Det nya svarta, a pop culture podcast in Swedish. Karin lives in Gothenburg, Sweden.
