If I had to describe ‘Love and Radio’, I tend to say something like: “It’s a LSD-trip for your ears, mixed with storytelling.” The podcast from Nick van der Kolk takes long interviews with often very unique characters, chops the interview material into small pieces and then adds a lot of love for sound design. Each episode feels different, has its own vibe, but yet fits perfectly into the overall style of the show. I interviewed Love and Radio sound designer Brendan Patrick Baker on the day the podcast started its new season.
Since 2011, Brendan Patrick Baker works as sound designer on ‘Love and Radio’. His first work, on the episode “The wisdom of Jay Thunderbolt“, not only won a Third Coast Festival award ,”but really launched Nick’s and my career in real way”, Brendan told me in our interview.
