micah vélez-jones / co-director & producer
Terri is a writer, mixed media artist, and Co-Director of the How it Ends podcast. Like Micah, she is a Puerto Rican Providence transplant by way of New Jersey (and like, 5 other states) and landed here by throwing a dart at a map. Terri hopes she never loses that kind of bravery. If you see her out she’s probably laughing, holding a cocktail, or hiking a trail. Ideally, it’s a combination of the three. Once, someone told her she was the personification of an arrow. Her Sagittarius moon loved that, her Virgo sun said, so you’re saying I’m direct?

Stephanie is a good writer, bad plant mom, and Co-Director of the How it Ends podcast. She’s a Providence, RI native, wannabe chef, Portuguese, and a little bit snarky, so it was natural for her to play Elia. Stephanie’s favorite places to be are on the couch with her dogs or traveling to new places with her husband to see what kind of potato chip flavors they have. She’s not ignoring you, she’s just an Aquarius.
