It’s the holidays, which hopefully means you’ll soon be kicking back with family, relaxing and putting on some stretchy pants. It’s the perfect time to catch up on podcasts you’ve been meaning to listen to as well. In particular, Gary has a new(ish) series he’s started, called AV People, as part of his regular Rants & rAVes podcast. On it, he gets personal with interesting people in the industry. Get to know Alison Maxon of Absen, who used to be a Disney cast character, or hear about how industry PR maven Kimberly Lancaster got her start in the industry. See if you have more industry certifications than acoustic engineer Melissa Ross (almost certainly not). Check out who else he’s done so far below, and let him know if you know anyone in the industry with an interesting background or story that he could interview. Enjoy the issue!
