    Today we have not one, but two very special guests: composers Brendon Williams and Jason Walsh.
    Question of the episode:
    How to get work in the video games industry, and at Riot Games?
    But before that, allow me to introduce you to the listeners:
    Jason Walsh is an award-winning music producer and composer recognized for his exceptional work in the gaming industry. He has collaborated with artists such as Jackson Wang, Porter Robinson, 88rising, and Mako, among others, earning him widespread recognition as an accomplished and versatile music creator and producer. Jason's unique and boundary-pushing compositions span a range of genres, from his sound design-enriched cinematic music to his signature blend of bass-heavy EDM and pop
     
    Brendon Williams has contributed music to major video game titles including League of Legends, Destiny 2: Forsaken, Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire, and Call of Duty: WWII. In 2019, he was nominated for a Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.) Award for “Best Original Choral Composition” for his work on Forsaken.
     
    Let’s dive right in!
