On the heels of its seventh season, the team behind Business of HYPE wanted to take advantage of this seasonal break to offer some insight into how each episode is produced. What most may not know is that our team consists of members situated all over the States, each having their own respective jobs. So what may seem like a casual conversation between two creatives in front of a microphone, takes much more detailed work behind-the-scenes.
Our traveling host, jeffstaple, also runs his own business Staple Design, while director Daniel Navetta runs creative agency Bryght Young Things. We also have a contributing sound engineer, David Rogers-Berry, editing all the way from Maine, while interludes are brought to you by associate producer and freelance content creator Sidney Pacampara as well as associate radio producer for HYPEBEAST, Christina Hong. From scheduling and interviewing, to sound engineering and distributing, we hope to provide an invaluable experience in each episode. So, if you’ve ever been curious how a podcast gets made or how to conduct an engaging and informative interview, tune in above and listen to our “Making of Business of HYPE” episode.
As always, thank you for tuning into HYPEBEAST Radio and Business of HYPE. You can subscribe to our channel on Apple, Spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Feel free to hit Jeff on Twitter, @jeffstaple, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and he may answer your question on a future episode.
