1. Heather Cox Richardson Interviews President Joseph Biden
Historian Heather Cox Richardson came to us with a tight deadline: edit and post her interview with President Joe Biden in video and audio, recorded on the eve of the Russian invasion of the Ukraine. We called one of our video associates and put that part of the task in their able hands, then began recording an intro with Heather remotely over the web, audio editing, clean-up, mixdown and mastering of the audio to standard podcast level to fit perfectly on Heather’s audio feeds. Within a couple of days, all media was posted, and within a few more, media had logged more than 700,000 views on social media.
2. New England Journal of Medicine Podcast
We have been recording the New England Journal of Medicine weekly summary podcast and the monthly clinical practice podcast for the past 16 years, with approximately 900 podcasts recorded. These podcasts are among the top medicine podcasts on the web.
3. Excerpts from audiobooks: Jumanji and Polar Express
Examples of two of our Grammy nominees, with Jumanji read by Robin Williams and Polar Express read by Liam Neeson. The music was scored and conducted by Michael Moss.
4. We Are Nimble and Resourceful
The podcast Let’s Talk About Food began as a production recorded in front of a live audience, a la the Moth Story Hour. As the pandemic strengthened, host/producer Louisa Kasdon and producer/audio director Michael Moss pivoted to implement a software platform that would record high-quality audio over the web in order to safely bring our audience these informative and entertaining culinary adventures. Hear an except of the original live show- LTAF 1, and then one of the LTAF In the House series- LTAF 49.
5. Original Song- Sincerely for the Last Time
This song was brought to Soundscape by singer/songwriter Kaeli Earle. Engineered by Michael Moss, he also stepped in to accompany Kaeli on tenor saxophone.
6. Excerpt from The Little Prince
Read by Viggo Mortensen, musical score by Michael Moss
