Avery Trufelman, Producer on 99% Invisible: “I've been lucky to share a long working history with Vika- starting years ago, when she interviewed me for a program on KPFA. I've done a handful of interviews in my life, but Vika was by far the most prepared, and provided the most thought-provoking conversation I've ever had on tape. In more recent years, we've grown closer as both friends and colleagues, as Vika has become an extended member of the 99pi family. In her job, editing our 20 minute podcast episodes down to 8 minutes for broadcast on KALW, Vika exercises excellent judgement and story sense. Many of her abbreviated stories end up sounding better than the originals! So overall, Vika is the whole package, from content to production. Soup to nuts. She's a gem.”

Stephanie Lepp, Creator/ Producer of Reckonings: Vika is an indispensable source of editorial guidance for my podcast, Reckonings. In her feedback on my rough cuts, she's able to span from the nitty-gritty details what pieces of tape to keep and cut, to the big-picture elements of how to frame the story and shape the narrative arc. I'm grateful for the opportunity to experience her brilliant editing mind at work.”
