The hardest (and nicest!) working man in showbiz sits down to chat about his life as a sound designer. It’s Lindsay Jones! He talks about making his Broadway debut with ‘A Time to Kill’ and why he waits until the last possible moment to write music for a show. He’s got a resume as long as the 20 years he’s been designing and he was the first person to record an episode. Enjoy!
