podcake aviMy name is Makaila Johnson, better known as PodCake, and I’ve been partaking in journalism for three years with plans to take it on as a career someday. I specialize in handling reviews and literary criticism articles and my focus is independently produced fictional content, varying from web comics to vloggers with my primary focus being audio drama. Though I take my writing seriously, I do subscribe to an aesthetic of fluffy, dreamland inspired cuteness with an emphasis on pinks, pastels, and deserts.

My drive and passion centers on getting my thoughts out there for artists like myself just looking for a little bit of publicity and collaboration and helping them earn the audience I feel like they deserve. My editorials are thorough, my reviews are rarely less than a thousand or more words, and my passion runs deep for all things creative and cute.
