A highlight of the upcoming AES virtual convention, taking much of the month of October, will be a look at building and maintaining podcast studios. “Developing Versatile Performance Spaces for Podcast Production Studios” will be an on-demand session.
Co-moderated by John Storyk, founding partner, WSDG Walters-Storyk Design Group, and WSDG Partner/COO, Joshua Morris, the panel will illustrate how dedicated podcast studios differ and how they are being used with respect to workflow as well as live performance production.
Panelists include Kevin Cole, senior director of programming/show host, KEXP(FM), Seattle; Jimmy Buff, executive director/show host, WKNY(FM)/Radio Kingston, Kingston, N.Y.; Steve Shultis, chief technology officer, WNYC Radio, N.Y.; and Austin Thompson, technical director, Gimlet (Spotify), Brooklyn, N.Y.; Los Angeles.
AES Show Broadcast and Online Delivery Track Chair David Bialik said, “The facility design session is usually one of the most attended.”
