This week's guest is Emmy nominated re-recording mixer Ryan David Adams. Ryan has been working on the post-production side of television for nearly two decades, amassing a long list of credits along the way. He recently received his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Nonfiction or Reality Show in 2020 for the Netflix documentary series "Cheer." Other notable shows that he's worked on include The Voice, Masterchef, American Idol, Lego Masters, Last Chance U for Netflix, and Class Action Park for HBO Max.
