Essential for new and experience sound mixers

This show helped me through getting my career up and running as a location sound mixer and is still an incredible resource now that I’m more experienced. My favorite thing to listen to as I’m driving to set.

Volodyapolozov ,

Great Job Michael!

This guy definitely knows what he’s talking about! Great content! Thanks!

How Not To Sail ,

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...😁)
