Ladies and Gentleman of the Internet, I present to you Episode 1 of The Busy Creator Podcast!

In this inaugural episode, I chat with Charles Penn, music producer and audio engineer. Our discussion meanders and covers topics as diverse as microphones, audio software and sound manipulation, and even some backup strategy. It’s the first episode so we’re still figuring out some sound. Thanks for joining in the fun.
