John McClain knows a thing or two about sound. For one thing, he's the owner and lead sound designer/mixer at The Dog and Pony Show in Las Vegas, Nevada (https://www.dogandponystudios.net/). For another, he won a Grammy for his work with the late, great George Carlin, and an Emmy for his work with HBO on the series 24/7, his work with PBS on the show Outdoor Nevada and his mix of the documentary African Americans: The Las Vegas Experience. If that's not enough, he teaches a class in Tech for voice talent through the Voice Actors Studio - https://www.thevoiceactorstudio.com/ - owned by Melissa Moats (https://www.ladyluckvoiceovers.com/ - another fantastic voice talent in Vegas) and another course on Sound for Film at UNLV.
