Glittering Mountains of Knowledge

I really love this show. As a sound artist/improvising musician attempting to transition into working in sound for other media, this podcast has been a true education, as well as a source of great pleasure. The podcast has been a balm for troubled ears, especially during this pandemic, as I am currently working overnight at a grocery store, and am doing a deep dive into the show's archives via headphones while stocking shelves (there is plenty of toilet roll, you needn't worry, it arrives nightly). Anyone need any grocery store ambiances? Hit me up! (Just kidding, all you'd hear is the sound of competing bluetooth speakers declaring the varied tastes of my co-workers). Many, many thanks to the hosts, Teresa, Timothy, and Rene for their hardwork and generosity, I owe them the equivalent of university tuition. I'll temper my praise with a slight criticism, just to prove my sincerity in what otherwise is intended as a glowing review: the bit in the intro where the women says "Let's do this," well, it kinda creeps me out, it's like sound design podcast as "jock-jam." Though that's just these ears, excellent work y'all, and thanks again.

Lots of insights

A lot of audio production podcasts are chitchat about gear. This one has that, but it also goes deep into the creative process, and those are the kinds of questions I ask a sound designer when I get one in a room.
