Host Skye Pillsbury talks with James Kim, the creator of fiction podcast Moonface. James reveals:

  • Why it felt important to tell a personal “slice of life” story — and why he created it as fiction;
  • What inspired the show’s sound design;
  • The reasons his parents haven’t listened to the show (yet);
  • Whether he named his lead character “Paul” after another fiction podcast creator.

Watch the video trailer for Moonface. Listen to James’ award-winning nonfiction piece First Language Attrition
