Kaitlin Dryden is a Los Angeles-based podcast producer, audio engineer and the host of Slut.

Growing up in an over-sexualized body, people always assumed Kaitlin’s promiscuity. The assumption led her to sluttiness, which at times was fun and others not. After years of sexual violence advocacy Kaitlin was burnt out and still trying to piece together her sexuality.

 

Slut was born from this: who is a slut and what makes a slut? On Slut, Kaitlin speaks to self-proclaimed sluts about where they’ve been, where they’re at, and where they want to be with their sexuality. Every episode questions what a slut really is and redefines it with each guest.

Other Work

Kaitlin produces and edits Talk Easy with Sam Fragoso, a weekly show of intimate, long-form interviews with people from all walks of life: filmmakers, comedians, activists, politicians, and actors. Working on over 130 episodes including ones with Tom HanksAnita Hill, Margaret Atwood, Stacey Abrams, Lena Dunham, Questlove, Marina Abramovic, Judd Apatow, Pedro Pascal, Cate Blanchett, and Buffy-Sainte Marie. As an associate producer, she comes up with guest and episode ideas, coordinates tapings, makes decisions on episodic material, and helps generate creative content. In 2022, an episode she edited with Ethan Hawke made it to Vulture's Best Podcast Interviews of The Year list.

From 2016 to 2019, Kaitlin was a leader in sexual violence advocacy at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada. The protest actions and petition pushed the school to change its sexual violence policy, which made the campus a safer place for survivors and victims. 

Where the interest in slut shaming began. Kaitlin completed a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Women and Gender Studies and Anthropology from St. Francis Xavier University. For her thesis, she executed primary research and wrote over 100 pages. The study focused on how cisgender, heterosexual, university women negotiated sexual practices with their male partners and investigated how health clinicians perceive students' sexual knowledge. It intended to create a discussion between students and health clinicians on effectively educating the campus on sexual health.
