Host & Creator
Kevin Chemidlin had the idea for "Philly Who?" on a cold December morning in 2017, as he was riding the Market-Frankford line to his 9-to-5 as a software developer. He had never created a podcast before; he hadn't even ever interviewed anyone before. But, his passion for Philly was overflowing, and he wanted to share the stories of Philly's most interesting people.
6 months later in May of 2018, "Philly Who?" was launched, and Kevin's life was forever changed. The show’s near-instant success led Kevin to leave his software career and launch Cue9 Creative, a podcast production company, as well as "Grow The Show," an accelerator program that helps other independent podcasters grow and thrive.
Katherine Nails is a producer at Cue9 Podcasts, where she assists in the day-to-day audio production and editorial operations. Prior to joining Cue9, Katherine worked as a writer and editor for various Philadelphia-area print publications including The Philadelphia Inquirer and Main Line Today magazine. Katherine is a graduate of University of Delaware, where she was a Managing Editor at The Review, a student-run newspaper. She is a recipient of the C.A. Tilghman Journalistic Award and the Woman of Promise Award for excellence in her field.
