SUMMER SERIES: There’s sound and then there’s immersive audio – sound that reaches into your bones and allows your mind to paint a rich and textured story. Few know more about this style of audio than ‘Carrier’, writer and director Dan Blank, who joined us earlier this season and explained his creative process.

An immersive experience is one that draws you into a new or augmented reality, largely enabled by technology. So how does podcasting, in its purely audio format, achieve this level of experience?

One way is to record binaurally, a method that requires specially arranged microphones to create a 3D stereo sound sensation for the listener. Like you’re actually there. And there’s no better person to take us on this journey than Dan Blank, writer and director of the immersive podcast ‘Carrier’, so lifelike, it warns you to use caution during your journey.

This episode of Podcasting Essentials is presented by Nick Schildberger and Nicole Goodman of SoundCartel.
