These two sound guys absolutely are a must-talk-to! Possibly the best working today!
I second this! Those two are brilliant and great speakers.
I am really enjoying the series of podcasts - so many thanks to James for all the work involved! But I really want to give this one a bump-up as we have still not had any sound design guys talk about their work. As I am one, one of our problems is that we tend to work in bubbles of isolation of ones, twos and threes and only really get to hear how others solve their day-to-day problems at trade get-togethers like the AES or at the Tonmeister-Tage.
As a facility owner, I get to talk to visiting sound engineers occasionally, but too much shop-talk is not really possible or welcome when someone is trying to work against the clock - so it would be nice to hear how others get 'that' sound (whatever 'that' is!)
