One of my favorite time-saving tools when editing or creating audio content is this online file converter. I can use it anywhere, even if I’m not on my own laptop. It’s super-quick and efficient, and accommodates lots of file options. Bookmark it!
My storytelling sucks …
… but that’s okay, because I have good taste.
Here’s some great advice from one of the most famous names in audio journalism. This is an excellent example of why I’m taking the leap and doing projects like 30 Days of Audio as well as seeking out workshops. I know from experience that I hated listening to my work for the longest time. Sometimes, I still do.
Yet every time I finish a piece, it always informs how I work on the next one, both in terms of what I did that I want to continue doing, and what I want to differently next time.

The blog is growing and I’ve got a lot coming up in the month of July!
On July 6th, I turn 30. To celebrate, and to kick off a year of “adventures in storytelling and sound” I’m starting 30 Days of Audio - a new audio post every day for 30 days. Expect to see posts from my new podcast, new Audio Filé posts for Nola Defender, never-before-heard Backstage on the Bayou interviews, outtakes, and bonus material from the archives, as well as other experiments with field recordings and other fun surprises.
On July 14th and 15th, I’ll be participating in BarCampNola! Stay tuned for more details.
July 22nd, Clarence Darrow, the one-man show about the life of the famed lawyer and champion of the underdog, written by David W. Rintels, starring Michael Martin and directed by Glen Meche, opens at Café Istanbul. I am stage managing this production.
