Episode 392 – PODRACE MONTH – The Sound of the Podrace

We’re kicking off a month long series of episodes all about the Boonta Eve Classic aka The Podrace and what better way to kick things off then talking about the incredible sound of the podrace!  JW Rinzler’s Sounds of Star Wars book calls the podrace Ben Burtt’s greatest achievement in sound and we couldn’t agree more.  Listen as we analyze the mind blowing soundscape Burtt and his crew at Skywalker Sound made for the film lap by lap and highlight some standout moments and reveal what continues to surprise us 25 years later.   

So get on your cigarette boat, celebrate the love and listen today!
