The People Behind The Show
Totem is created and hosted by us, Jamie Yuenger and Piet Hurkmans.
We’re an international couple living in Holland. Jamie, an American woman, founded the legacy film company StoryKeep Inc. which produces documentaries about family histories. Piet, a Dutchman, worked for decades as an award-winning filmmaker, executive TV producer and leadership coach.
The Totem Team also includes Diantha Parker, a journalist and media consultant who worked at The New York Times and NPR, where she produced and edited All Things Considered, Weekend Edition Saturday, and Talk of the Nation, and was one of the creators of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me. Caroline Hadilaksono is Totem’s audio producer, a passionate audiophile, designer and illustrator who left Indonesia at age 12 and moved to L.A. to live on her own.
