We are audio engineers at NPR, ask us anything!
I am a Production Specialist with NPR Training — that means my gig is to help NPR reporters and producers tell better stories with sound. I just published this ear training guide:
at the NPR Training site along with a fun audio quiz:
I also mix the podcast Criminal and wrote The Audio Producer’s Guide to Loudness.
I’m joined by two wonderful colleagues from NPR, audio engineers Neil Tevault (/u/NeilTee33) and Andy Huether (/u/altitudinus_rex). Neil is the Technical Director for All Things Considered, and Andy runs NPR’s music studio and works with our wide range of podcasts. All three of us are trained audio engineers with backgrounds in music and field recording, live broadcasting and other fun audio stuff in the podcast and public radio worlds.
We’re here to take your questions about audio problems, podcast production, broadcast issues, audio editing software, gear — anything production-related.
We want to help. Ask us anything! We’re answering questions until 2:00pm ET.
It's 2pm, so we're going to wrap things up! Thanks everyone, this was fun! There are many questions we didn't get to, so we'll do our best to get to some of these over the next day.
