Narrative audio in all of its forms — podcasting, radio, audio books — is now a veritable playground for sound design, composition, and mixing techniques traditionally only found in other mediums. The demand for these skills continues to grow, workflows become more complicated — and audio engineers continue to prove their essential value.
Rob Byers (American Public Media, Final Final v2) leads a conversation about the craft of audio storytelling with the production team behind Reveal's investigative series "American Rehab." Sound designer/composers Jim Briggs and Fernando Arruda are joined by series reporter/producers Laura Starecheski and Ike Sriskandarajah to explore what it takes to pull together a multi-year, eight-part audio production. We'll discuss their creative process, workflows, and the techniques they used to tell this important investigative story.
