BrySharpe ,

Great information!

Justin knows his stuff. This podcast is a great balance of affirming the things you’re doing right, challenging bad habits, and also presenting new ways of thinking about your approach. The way info is presented covers lots of perspectives and situations.

Brian Alexander Music ,

Really insightful

Justin mixes in the craft and the business of music production - the latest episode from 4/19/22 focused on how to build your network and ‘reel’ for example. Extremely relevant topics for us hobbyists, semi pro producers and pro engineers! Can’t recommend this podcast enough.

Audio Wisdom!!!

I’m sooo thankful I found this podcast! Justin breaks down every concept that you need to understand in order to take your music productions to the next level. This truly is a treasure trove of audio wisdom. It’s a little different from the normal audio tutorial type stuff, this podcast is about how to think about audio production more than technical knowledge. Sonic Scoop podcast is pretty much a free 4 year degree in Music Production. AMAZING!!!
