When Your Podcast About Monsters Becomes A Monster Itself
One of my favorite things to do with my Weird Darkness podcast is to produce our Saturday episodes for kids 12+, “Micro Terrors: Scary Stories for Kids“. Sometimes I go a bit overboard in the production of it – and this time is no exception. For the episode, “Monsters in the Storm” I wasn’t satisfied with the thunderstorm sound effects I had in my personal library, nor was I happy with the ones I found online – so I combined all of them, overlapped them on top of each others, and made a massive thunderstorm for the ages. It will probably be subtle within the podcast, but this was the only way it would sound okay to me. I bounced all of this to a single track and then started creating the episode from there with the rest of the sound effects and music – which were once grew monstrous. Below is what my Adobe Audition multitrack looked like. If you’d like to hear the episode, scroll down to the bottom of this post.
