OC Katie Strick (11), a journalist at the Evening Standard newspaper in London, has just launched her first podcast: 'London Love Stories with Katie Strick.'

Katie was Captain of College for the year 2010/2011 and went on to study geography at Durham University followed by a masters in newspaper journalism at City University in London. She credits her time editing the school magazine, Focus, as well as writing for various student publications at university, for sparking her interest in journalism and creative writing at an early age. 

After her masters degree, Katie went onto complete the prestigious Daily Mail news trainee scheme before getting a job on the features desk at the Evening Standard, where she works as a senior writer and editor today. 

Launched in November, her new eight-part podcast tells some of the most extraordinary real-life love stories from across our capital city, from a couple who met on the Tube to a paramedic and a police officer who met after answering the same 999 call. Richard Curtis, the creator of some of the most notorious great British rom-coms from Love Actually to Notting Hill, stars as her special guest in episode six.

In the weeks since it launched, Katie's podcast has already ranked in the top three podcasts in Spotify's love and dating charts and has been picked up by various publications from The Mirror to London Live TV. She hopes to launch a second series in the new year and has written about her learnings from series one in an article here. 

Outside of podcasting, Katie's work for the Evening Standard has seen her spend a day with an ambulance crew, a fire crew and in a 999 call centre, and playing pickleball for the first time with no other than Tim Henman himself.

She has become the Evening Standard's go-to writer for political profiles and news-review features covering social issues and cultural analysis as well as arts, fitness, travel and lifestyle. She has interviewed celebrities ranging from Andy Murray to Hadley Freeman and her long-reads on the disappearance of Tatler It-Girl Constance Marten and what happened to Amy Winehouse’s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil have both received more than 100,000 article views in the last 12 months. 

London Love Stories with Katie Strick is out now, on all available podcast platforms.
