One of our very favorite podcasts to work with, Hear To Slay, recently brought in the great and very funny Cristela Alonzo (Cristela) for a new episode. Hear To Slay is the brainchild of Roxane Gay and Tressie McMillan Cottom, and features interviews with some pretty talented and amazing women, alongside cultural commentary, contemporary intersectional feminist viewpoints, and discussion of current events.

This session was engineered by our own Pascal McGilvray-Guard, who has taken the lead on engineering the majority of Gay and McMillan Cottom’s shows, alongside Dubway engineers Violette Furton and Rory O’Hara. We were lucky and honored to have Alonzo in studio for this session, but as Pascal will tell you, that’s not always the case. Fortunately, we’re set up for remote session recording as well.

Hear To Slay is available from Luminary – you can pick up the podcast and a Luminary subscription right here. We definitely encourage you to do so!

Actor James Penca.

NYC actor James Penca stopped into our studios last month to record a set of voice over lines for an interesting upcoming project. The final work will be a VR training game for therapists that helps to teach them how to care for patients managing PTSD. Recording voice over for VR, or any video game, is an always-interesting endeavor, as it requires an extremely dry, clear recording that will be later manipulated in real-time in the game engine for realistic spatial effects. Dubway’s Pascal McGilvray-Guard ran the control room on this recording. We’re hopeful that this project can help coach therapists to better treat those struggling with PTSD!
