Podcast Producer

Moderated by CATHERINE JOY

Edith Mudge is a musical multi-hyphenate based out of Los Angeles, California. Her music has been placed in 3,000+ episodes of 500+ series & films, including BooksmartSaturday Night Live, and, without a doubt, your guilty pleasure reality show. Having trained for 3 years at Hans Zimmer’s Remote Control Productions/Bleeding Fingers and spent 2 years at Jingle Punks as an in-house composer, Edith has honed a comprehensive set of musical, technical, and collaborative skills, as well as a keen eye for detail.

She currently composes for TV, film, podcasts, live theater, and more. Her music editing can be heard on HBO, Amazon, and Netflix, and her commercial composing credits include IFC, KTLA, and Peloton. Her work and life are greatly influenced by her stubborn desire for social justice for all, and her own experience that representation matters. You can find her practicing Chopin nocturnes on her baby grand and messing around on noisy synths.

Robinton Hobbs is a composer, music editor, and artist based in Los Angeles. He is the COO and Co-Founder of Joy Music House, overseeing the production of dozens of media scores, including Emile Mosseri’s Oscar-nominated work for Minari, and served as the music editor for the hit Netflix docuseries Untold.

A passionate lover of musical storytelling, Robinton seeks to use music as driving force, crafting captivating environments that elevates the tale at hand. His latest project, the historical horror podcast The Witch And Other Tales Of The American Gothic is a collection of haunting audio dramas set across the diverse landscape of 19th century America.

Theo Balcomb created The Daily at The New York Times in 2017. Under her leadership, the podcast reached an audience of more than 4 million listeners a day and more than 200 public radio stations, won a duPont award, and served as part of multiple Pulitzer Prize-winning submissions from The New York Times. Before The Daily, she was the youngest-ever supervising producer of All Things Considered at NPR. These days, she is working as an independent editor and producer on projects across the audio industry, including the podcast Song Exploder and The Washington Post’s investigative series Broken Doors, a 2023 Pulitzer finalist.

Catherine Joy is a composer for film, media and live performance with a passion for music and collaboration. Early in her career she won Best Documentary Score for the uplifting feature documentary Gold Balls. Catherine’s score for documentary Naughty Books (Hulu) resulted in an ASCAP Composers Choice Award nomination and her narrative feature, Potato Dreams Of America had its world premiere at SXSW. She has scored a number of romantic comedies for Reel One Entertainment, additional music for Disney, HBO, Hulu, Sony, Discovery and History channel TV shows and live score produced over 40 features and television projects including the Oscar-nominated Minari. One of her favorite projects to date was scoring a Sesame Street letter segment.
