How does audio shape storytelling?

How audio illustrates an environment, creates moods and emotions, and delivers information far beyond what can be conveyed visually.

Since the dawn of civilization, sound has been an essential tool for storytellers. After the demise of silent films, sound design and audio mixing has been as crucial to movies and television as cinematography. In audio-based media like radio and podcasts, audio conveys the story all by itself. This episode explores how audio illustrates an environment, creates moods and emotions, and delivers information far beyond what can be conveyed visually.
