Sound Design and Home Recording with Here Be Monsters


April 18, 2020 • 12:00 pm PDT

We all need something to look forward to. How about an hour of audio magic with independent producers Jeff Emtman and Bethany Denton? Jeff and Bethany produce KCRW’s Here Be Monsters, a podcast about the unknown. As a remote team, they don’t always have studio access so they’re familiar with making rich audio stories from home.

In this virtual workshop, we’ll get into the nitty gritty like editing and mixing phone tape, why some of the best podcasts are made with cheap equipment, and how to get a source to tape sync themself.


  • 30 minutes: Tips about home recording | Examples of HBM episodes.
  • 30 minutes: Screen share | Audio editing, including phone tape.
  • 20 minutes: Q&A | Bring questions about audio you’re working on!

Grab a coffee, log onto Zoom, and nerd out with us.

**RSVP now. We’ll send a Zoom link the day of the event.**
