Working Class Audio
About This Show
Working Class Audio (WCA) delves into the world behind recording professionals and goes way beyond the typical “What was it like to work with” or “What is the best eq to use on a kick drum” style questions typical of most interviews.
WCA gets up close and personal with audio professionals and asks the questions no one else asks. Business practices, mistakes, failures, equipment choices, financial advice, work life balance, workflow, and family life are topics that are all on the table.
WCA interviews a combination of known and unknown audio pros from the worlds music, film & TV and video games.
