Erin Kyan is a disabled, queer, trans man living in Melbourne, Australia. An artist with a passion for all things strange, intense and emotional, he creates work in a variety of formats from zines to podcasts to poetry on stage. His work explores the breadth of human experience from the wet and visceral darkness that lurks within us to the bright and shining hope and power of love and community.
Together with his partner Lee, Erin is half of Passer Vulpes Productions, a podcast production house in Melbourne, specialising in audio fiction. Producing high quality, critically acclaimed and uniquely Australian shows, Passer Vulpes Productions creates everything from sweet romance to science fiction, from years-long serials to two minute shorts. He wears a lot of hats with Passer Vulpes Productions – as writer, producer, director, editor, sound designer, and so much more.
Accessibility is a huge focus for him in his podcast work, and all the Passer Vulpes Productions shows are made with care towards accessbility at every step, from including access for disabled team members during production to making sure every episode has captions available on YouTube at release. He has also taught podcast accessibility on a mentorship level, as well as presenting at conferences and universities, to help current and future producers grow their own understanding of accessibility as well as improve the accessibility of their work.
Erin and Colin Kelly Rodriguez won a Best Director award at #NZWF22 for their work on Someone Dies in this Elevator.
