Dream job alert 🚨 if you want to work with Twenty Thousand Hertz then listen to the first minute of this ep
My kid ran into the room when I was listening to this ep shouting "that's a water phone! We learned about that in music." So contrary to what they say here, there ARE some schools that teach kids about this eerie, unusual instrument that has been a horror and thriller mainstay for decades.
It’s impossible not to smile while listening to anything about Bob Ross
Dallas Taylor talks to Jonathan Wolff, the man behind the Seinfeld theme music, about what makes it so unusual. Jonathan broke the mold of theme songs by creating a template of music that would be different every opening, that would work around what Jerry was saying on his "what's the deal with airplane peanuts" set. Loved this episode.
I never guessed the right thing in this two-parter about Foley artists, the people who make sound effects for the movies. I kept shouting out "cornflakes!" and it was always some other astonishing, but everyday item making the sound. What a fun job this would be.
Guyed Wires. Bears growling. An idling projector. This episode goes through the various props that brought to life the sound effects in Star Wars. Really fun and interesting listen
Twenty Thousand Hertz is a consistently great podcast. Here’s another great episode, where I learn something I didn’t know I wanted to learn.
