I specialize in multi-voice recording (3 or more voices). I also am a consultant and do show development for podcasts, radio, and television. I work with organizations to audit their culture, to determine how to create and manage long-running and sustainable podcasts and programming. I host a weekly radio show on WCPT 820 AM in Chicago, and I am the longtime podcast editor for Commonweal Magazine. I'd love to talk with you about your project!
