With their fresh perspectives, unending honesty and creative genius, this group of producers and editors helps bring the most unladylike podcast to your earbuds each week.
abigail keel, senior producer
Abigail's brain, Google docs and Slack messages keep our show — and our lives, tbh — running as smoothly as possible. The perfect blend of creative and Type A, this St. Louis native helps guide each episode's flow, structure and sound to fit in with Unladylike's voice and mission.
Before Unladylike, Abigail produced the podcast The Longest Shortest Time and won two Third Coast awards! She has also contributed stories to podcasts like Radiolab and Reveal. Abigail is from the MidBEST and based in Brooklyn. Her hobbies include eating hotdogs off the grill, planning parties with elaborate themes, and reading books for her feminist book club. Her most unladylike trait is her refusal to wear moisturizer before bed.
gianna palmer, editor
Gianna helps the Unladylike team figure out what they want to say and how to say it. She used to be Katie Couric's senior podcast producer. Before podcasting took over her life (in a good way), Gianna worked in public media at the BBC and WNYC. She grew up around a lot of tie-dye in Eugene, Oregon. Gianna likes lifting weights, tending to potted plants and helping her friends practice asking for raises.
nora ritchie, associate producer
Nora has recently joined the Unladylike team and is excited to sport fresh pink nail polish and give a big middle finger to the patriarchy! She learned radio at the Transom Story Workshop and has produced for the Katie Couric podcast, Fake the Nation and In Sickness and In Health.
Before making podcasts, Nora worked in nearly every facet of the music industry: doing PR, working at a talent booking agency and making music. She still moonlights as a singer and loves to sing jazz and original music with her band Lucide.
Nora grew up in Albany, New York, where she once told her entire sixth-grade class that she was going to be the first woman president! She currently lives in Brooklyn.
Fun fact: Nora’s birthday is Aug. 26, the day women got the right to vote in 1920. She's been a feminist since the jump!
