Young Charlie

Editorial, Podcasting

With all the fame, glory and riches coming to podcasters these days, production teams from many other media are rushing to produce. But producing for the ear is very different than producing TV or films.

Case in point, Young Charlie.

I was brought in late by Wondery to make this show, produced by a TV company, into a much more sound rich, radiophonic, immersive listening experience. Which means I had to get in deep with the team — rewrite scripts, add sound, create scoring and other elements that work for the ear.

The result? A #1 hit that’s been downloaded over 2 million times.
