10 Things That Scare Me


10 Things That Scare Me is a bite-sized experiment in empathy from WNYC Studios. Each episode runs 5 to 7 minutes, with a single guest listing ten of their biggest fears. There is no host. Just you and a new voice sharing a vulnerable moment.

I currently mix and produce three episodes a week. Any music or sound design you hear on the show is original. I’m lucky to be on a team that supports wacko experimentation and helps me strive to keep sounding new. In a single week, a team member may ask me to conjure a spaghetti western, a tap dance routine, a dentist’s chair, a single car passing on a desert highway, and an underwater battle royale. That’s all true actually. That was the week of January 15, 2019.
