Show Notes

For this special episode, Jay invited Rebecca Sananes, lead producer for Pivot, with Kara Swisher and Scott Galloway, as well as 3 Clips producer Cherie Turner, to get on the mic and talk about what they do. 

You’ll get an insightful behind-the-scenes look from the people who influence and shape shows—very big and less big—in ways that are not obvious to the outside world (and that’s largely the goal).

Where the hosts are the front-facing personality, the producers help shape the show in ways both large and small, off the mic (mostly). Learn why Rebecca wants people to know that producers are artists and thinks this is the best job in the world—and why Cherie thinks producers get to do all the “fun stuff.”

Sound Design & Music Composition (ft. Sam Riddell & Joel Roston)

This special episode explores sound design and music composition with guests Sam Riddell and Joel Roston. Among many other projects and roles, Sam is the sound designer of In Those Genes (and she was featured with that show’s host, Dr. Janina Jeff, in a previous 3 Clips episode). Joel is a musician and composer who creates music for podcasts, film, and video. He’s co-owner of Titlecard Music & Sound, a music library and custom composition company for creators.  In this episode, Sam and Joel break down clips of their own work, as well as a clip from host Jay. Sound design and music are powerful tools, but challenging for many podcasters. Sam and Joel discuss how to start doing this work on your own as well as how to work with professionals like themselves to get the results you’re after. They also talk about how they approach their own work.  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit http://3clipspodcast.com for all episodes of the show.  LEARN MORE ABOUT JAY Subscribe to his newsletter, explore his course for podcasters, or watch and listen to all of Jay’s shows and projects at http://jayacunzo.com  LEARN MORE ABOUT CASTOS 3 Clips is a Castos Original Series.

Bonus Episode: 10% Happier's Show Development Process (ft. Jen Poyant and Nate Tobey)

What do folks from public radio learn about show development that the rest of us don't understand? How do some of the top shows in the world START? What techniques, processes, or mental heuristics do professional showrunners use to ensure that they're developing strong show premises and IP -- not just "yet another" podcast about the same topics as their competitors?Today, we go inside a live call from our latest podcast workshops, and we hear from Nate Tobey and Jen Poyant.Nate Tobey (formerly of APMG and WGBH) is the director of content at 10% Happier, and Jen Poyant (former WNYC producer and co-founder of Stable Genius Productions) is their Executive Producer.10% Happier is a mindfulness and meditation tech company, co-founded by ABC News and Good Morning America anchor Dan Harris, and on the back of Harris's very popular podcast (also called 10% Happier), the company decided to create a slate of shows.On the call, Jay interviews Nate and Jen, with students chiming in near the end.Interested in our workshops?

Wireframe: Fonts as People (ft. Khoi Vinh and Dominic Girard)

When’s the last time you attended an audio-only house party populated entirely by personified versions of fonts? Actual typefaces like Arial and Times New Roman speaking at you like real life people? Imagine how obnoxious Comic Sans sounds… Welcome to the ambitious world of Wireframe, a podcast from Adobe and Pacific Content. Inside today’s episode, Jay speaks with Khoi Vinh and Dominic Girard, two of the three hosts of Wireframe, a show with a unique eye toward helping design professionals and the design-curious, fostering a new appreciation for the craft while demonstrating how design impacts the world around you. Khoi and Dominic breakdown the nitty-gritty with Jay, ranging from logistics between hosts and the brandteam, what it means to be a podcast host versus a public speaker, and tricks for transforming show guests into actors. Wireframe is not a show that’s afraid to reach. Khoi Vinh, named one of the most creative people in business by Fast Company, is Senior Director of Product Design at Adobe. His co-host Dominic Girard is a showrunner from Pacific Content, a podcast production company which helps make Wireframe as well as shows from some of the world’s top brands like Dell, Charles Schwab, Atlassean, and Facebook.
