Great Job Michael!
This guy definitely knows what he’s talking about! Great content! Thanks!
I highly recommend...!
From the war stories to the gear, if you’re a location audio guy or gal of any stripe—or merely interested—I highly recommend checking out this podcast. Michael knows his stuff, and his guests always do, too. Five thumbs up! (Or something like that...😁)
I find talking to mixers from other parts of the world to be very helpful with gear, tips, and tricks. I’d love an episode where you talk about the setup you record your podcast.
