Bleeps ‘n’ Bloops is a cool new Game Audio podcast started by Jim Welch, Dave Shumway, and Alyssa Galindo to discuss game audio news, current events, gear, and interviews with industry folks. I recently skyped in to the Bleeps ‘n’ Bloops Podcast for the interview segment.

It was a lot of fun to discuss how I started in the industry, different companies I’ve been at, and how different it is to be a freelancer instead of working full time on site at a studio. Enjoy 🙂
