Meet the two-time Emmy-Award nominated photographer, producer, and livestreaming afficionado, Tom Langan. Tom may have the nicest equipment of any podcaster that Corinna & Jules have yet interviewed, and he’ll tell you all about what makes his gear stand out during our interview. For a deeper dive into the technology, and to see his video setup — you’ll want to tune in to this full-length, unedited interview on YouTube. The audio-only version is roughly 1/2 the length, given that no visuals are included and some of this interview would have been difficult to grasp in the audio-only version. As a whole, the YouTube interview trended very technical — so if you’re an A/V nerd, trust us, and head over to YouTube!
