With Covid-adapted sports production in full swing, we will check in with a sampling of A1s currently hard at work in various bubbles, empty arenas, and stadiums to see how they are getting along without fans and with or without the various flavors of league or network-mandated fake crowds taking their place. We will be joined by production specialist, sound designers, and other DTVAG members to discuss how it is going, what we are learning, and what changes may become permanent.  Besides taking a look at MLB, MLS, NBA, NASCAR, NHL and PGA, we will look ahead to what to expect when NFL coverage begins.
