Podcast Episode #1: "Everything You Should Know About Sound"

2017-11-18 19:56:20 by BenjaminTibbetts

Hello, Newgrounds! How are you? Just a quick announcement regarding the podcast I launched yesterday:

The last few years, I've started listening to podcasts and audiobooks while driving and doing chores. This habit has been immensely enjoyable. Absorbing good books and discussions during my downtime has added a lot to my life.

I've always had a bit of a compulsion to make things like the things I enjoy. I read a great book and I immediately feel like writing; I watch a great movie and immediately feel like filming or photographing something; etc. So when I started listening to podcasts on a daily basis, it wasn't a surprise when I started feeling the itch to get out a microphone.

Yesterday, I had some rare free time and finally caved, spending a few lovely hours recording and editing the first episode of what I'm calling "The Ben Tibbetts Podcast". Not the most imaginative title, I know...

This first episode covers the physics of sound as explained in an article by TIm Urban (WaitButWhy.com).

Making this was incredibly fun for me, like indulging in a guilty pleasure. I plan on doing more of these and already have a long mental list of topics I'd love to cover. My idea at this point is to use each episode as an excuse to talk about subjects that interest me. Since my background is in music, I might explore topics through the lens of music and musicianship. Regardless, I would like to improve at doing this sort of thing and would really appreciate feedback.

As always, if you enjoy my work you can follow me to be notified when I post new content; finally, you can also check out my website for full access to dozens of interviews, articles, music, and more.

Thank you!

Interesting, you know they use hyper accurate lasers to listen to surfaces? Lasers are rly good at measuring distances, wonder how good they'd be in the water... anyway, stellar first podcast. Be interested to hear your take on the various composition styles out there

BenjaminTibbetts responds:

Cool, I didn't know that. My hunch is lasers would be less effective in water because they would bend. Fun experiment on "trapping" lasers in water: http://integratedscienceathome.blogspot.com/2011/01/bending-light.html
