ABOUT THE PODCAST
When filming on location, the crew uses walkie talkies to communicate and most of the activity takes place on Channel One. When we need to have a more detailed conversation, we switch to Channel Two.
“Locations on Two” is a podcast featuring lively banter and stories from the trenches of production with people working behind the scenes on some of your favorite movies and television shows.
Join us on the back channel where the work gets done on set, “Locations on Two!”
