SVG Europe Audio joins forces with audio broadcast podcast Pushing Faders

SVG Europe Audio is excited to announce it has joined forces with Pushing Faders, a broadcast audio-focused podcast.

Pushing Faders, which was launched late last year, is a broadcast and TV audio-based podcast. Each episode features a broadcast audio industry specialist.

The podcast is hosted by broadcast sound supervisor Chris Eckford. Since starting work in outside broadcasts in 2010, Eckford has gone on to mix at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and The FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia, as well as spending four years as a supervisor at Sky Production Services.

Pushing Faders’ Chris Eckford

Eckford commented on the association with SVG Europe: “I’m very happy to have SVG Europe onboard with Pushing Faders. Having the backing of such a great industry resource shows that people are interested in what the guests of the podcast have to say, and hopefully it will become a great way of sharing information and knowledge throughout the industry.”
