*IN SYNC is a podcast for anyone who loves a perfect on-screen needle-drop. With their extensive experience in music and podcasting, cultural critic Rachel Brodsky and filmmaker/podcaster Aviv Rubinstien have joined forces to create the brand-new *IN SYNC Podcast. A historiography celebrating your favorite music moments in TV and film, *IN SYNC looks at one great song-to-screen sync per episode and breaks down the cultural impact. Rachel and Aviv are often joined by guests such as the music supervisors behind these highly memorable music moments. On April 11, Gotham West Studios will launch the first episode centered around Sia’s “Breathe Me” closing out cult TV show, Six Feet Under. Combining the masterful storytelling and the emotional power of music, *IN SYNC is an episodic deep dive into music history and fandom.
