In November of 2016 Tonebenders went on an sound nerd’s tour of New York City. We visited some of the city’s top post audio studios and interviewed many of the talented sound professionals working in NYC. In this episode regular Tonebenders host Timothy and guest co-host Teresa Morrow (a busy re-recording engineer based in Toronto) tell us about the trip and play clips of many of the interviews they did while in the Big Apple. Featured in this episode are Skip Lievsay, Tom Fleischman, Nicholas Renbeck, Bob Hein and many more.
This episode features a great conversation about the ins and outs of sound design in radio and podcasting.
