Loving Our Work, Self-Care, and Recording The World with Melissa Pons

For Episode #3 of the Sound Business Podcast, we're interviewing the wonderful Melissa Pons.


Melissa Pons is a field recordist and sound designer who is known for her beautiful nature recordings of wolves, rainforests, and natural soundscapes from all over the world. All of her albums are available on her Bandcamp page, including her most recent release Mata Atlantica, which is a stunning collection of recordings from Brazilian rainforests.


In this episode we talk about Melissa's recording process, why she does what she does, dealing with bad clients, how to love your work, and keeping our creative work sustainable.
