About the Hosts

Kevin Chemidlin

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.
