Where we celebrate women and non-binary folk working in animation, and explore representation behind the scenes and on the screen.

I&PF-135, Suzanna Olson, Producer

August 4, 2021

Welcome to the Ink and Paint Folk podcast- a look at animation through the women and non-binary folk who make it!

Hosted by Cassie Soliday

Today's guest is Producer, Suzanna Olson!


As a dedicated animation production professional she has committed herself to supporting creatives and finding ways to be always improving the production pipeline, ways to improve herself and her interactions with others, as well as ways of lifting up those around her. We discuss her passion and drive, the politics of being a production person and reading a room of creatives, and how she was promoted right after returning from maternity leave (something that rarely, if ever, happens!!!). Suzanna is a delight, and I’m so excited for you to meet her!


*Please note that this interview was recorded in 2018.



This podcast is produced in partnership with Women in Animation

"Today, women hold only 20% of the creative roles in animation. WIA wants to make it 50/50 by 2025!"

Please also check out other great organizations promoting diversity in the industry: Black n’ Animated, Rise Up Animation, LatinX in Animation, Asian Queens in Animation. and Diverse Toons.
