Open Conversation is an award-winning podcast production company that creates podcasts from original ideas.
We pursue stories that matter and produce shows in a variety of forms and across a range of genres independently and in partnerships with private enterprises, public radio stations, foundations and other entities.
I am a media specialist with more than 10 years’ experience across print, radio, and television journalism. The Southwest is where my heart is—I currently live and work in Las Vegas, but travel home to New Mexico when I can for some good green chile.
I am an award-winning voiceover artist with more than 15 years’ experience. I am a podcaster and a mum to my 6-year-old son, who is the result of successful fertility treatment. I'm a keen yogi, seasoned camper, and big fan of the outdoors, especially music festivals.
I am a user experience (UX) researcher and designer by career, behavior analyst and biologist by trade, and a perfectionist at heart. Aside from this, my few leisure hours are spent playing trumpet, swimming laps, training my two cats and basset hound puppy, or playing Dungeons and Dragons.
I'm a storyteller, podcast producer, and a forever student. Besides attending Arizona State University, I bring people's stories to life in the form of audio. In my downtime you can find me reading, crocheting, or drinking too much coffee.
I have over 10 years of experience in radio broadcasting and voiceover work. I’m one of those radio producers who prefers tea over coffee. And when I’m not editing audio, I enjoy hiking the many trails central Arizona has to offer with my husband and my spunky rescue dog.
LISA L MARKS-BREEN
I have a civil engineering degree from Sacramento State University, go Sac Bees! So, I am problem solver at heart and like numbers and organization. I enjoy a good movie, a good meal, or a good walk with my husband and our two Chihuahuas: Pepper and Habanero.
Previously a monitoring journalist and producer at BBC and, later, NPR networks, I started Open Conversation in 2017 as my interest in the world of podcasting and immersive audio storytelling grew. I’m a mother of three teenagers and three free-flying parakeets.
