Julie Piñero

Location: Brooklyn, New York

Since 2014, I've worked across multiple formats of storytelling. I started as an assistant at the Late Show and Saturday Night Live, then pivoted into journalism, producing my own video docs at HuffPost and Thrillist. I now produce narrative podcasts for outlets like Audible and the New York Times, while also performing my own long-form comedy around Brooklyn.  


I've worked a senior audio producer at Audible Originals since 2018. One of my projects, "Book of Baraka", was called "groundbreaking" by Audible CEO Don Katz and became one of the few projects released outside the Audible paywall.

My mission is to push the boundaries of format and expectation. I like it when funny stories have emotional depth, when serious stories crack tension with a joke. 

I'm best known for my 2021 solo show "Delejos (from afar)", which explores the humor of grief. It was covered by the LA Times, Insider and Playbill, and an interview I did about it on the podcast "Good Grief" was named one of Spotify's "Best Podcast Episodes of the Month". I was approached by an editor at New York Times Opinion to adapt it into an audio op-ed, forthcoming in 2023 on the series "First Person". My style of performance, seen in both "Delejos (from afar)" and my 2023 solo show "Hum" will be profiled by the Smithsonian Channel in 2023.

One of my favorite jobs had me traveling the US for two years producing the video documentary "Food/Groups", hosted by James Beard Award winning food writer Dave Infante. We reported on regional dishes and the culinary subcultures behind them. The show was nominated for a Webby award and now streams on Amazon Prime.

But I'm just as happy in the field as I am the eighth hour of a Pro Tools edit. 

What I love most about my work is my range of collaborators. I've produced stories with journalists like Jelani Cobb and Jon Ronson, comedians like Kate Willett and Mo Welch, producers like Rachel Hamburg and Anna Stitt.

When I'm not working, I like to swim laps, play guitar, dance salsa and try every last slice of pizza the city has to offer.
