Creating and Producing the Podcast Abridged with Rebecca Seidel
Rebecca Seidel is a podcast producer, engineer and sound designer. She is lead producer for the company Goat Rodeo and lead engineer for the show Other Men Need Help. She has also spent some serious time considering the role that bridges play in our lives.
In fact, over the past few years, Rebecca created a podcast series dedicated to exploring this very idea, called Abridged. The first episode of the series follows climber Dave Frieder, who has ascended to the top of every major bridge in New York City. The episode is called The Bridge Man, and it recently premiered at the Tribeca Festival as part of the Emerging Audio Artist’s Panel.
On this episode, we speak with Rebecca about her approach to producing, writing, editing and sound designing Abridged, and her path to becoming a podcast producer, engineer, and sound designer.
We also discuss her approach to creating soundscapes that can enhance an audio story and the important role that sound plays in her life.
