Today we’re talking with a legend in record pressing, a trailblazer, and disruptor, the amazing and unapologetic Heath Gmucs. He is the founder of the coolest effects in custom vinyl, Wax Mage Records. Most everyone is familiar with his records, even if they’re not completely familiar with the person that makes them! In this episode, we’re talking about making records, making space, making those spaces safe and inclusive and how to keep passion and enthusiasm in your career. We talk about gender, gender equality and the roles of Women in vinyl, and how there’s room for all of us.
