Mobile Audio Technology & Podcasting On the Go: A Conversation with Fernando Eid Pires – Part 2
“Eyesight’s probably the first sense most prioritized by the brain but right behind it is hearing and it can influence your state of mind, your emotions. You know, if you put the right music to work, you work better. If you put the right music to work out, you work out better, you know. If you want to have a romantic date, there’s a very different kind of music you’ll want to play there. Well, needless to say, it’s amazing, and if you’re cognizant of what you’re choosing to hear it, will have an effect on you.” — Fernando Eid Pires
This episode’s the second half of my interview with entrepreneur, audio engineer, and Audiosigma founder, Fernando Eid Pires as we discuss his inspirational book Jumpstart, the ins and outs of developing the PodMobile, and his perspective as a newcomer to the voice industry.

The Extra Mile
The second half of our conversation starts with a closer look at the creative and engineering process behind PodMobile and how Fernando’s using feedback from his contacts within the voice and audio industry to continue developing and expanding the mobile tool into an audio Swiss army knife for every occasion. “The idea of the PodMobile,” he explains, “is that it solves your problems. So if you have to go the extra mile… then I think my equipment is not doing the job that it could do.”
Getting Your Life Together
He also tells us about his book Jumpstart and the lessons that it drew from his early life and struggles to help others follow their own path to success. “It’s about getting your life together,” he says. “It’s very much self-help.” Fernando acknowledges that this can be easier said than done and that he had to overcome his own struggle with shyness to be able to offer advice to others. “It’s very difficult for somebody to just take days to just lay out that plan,” he tells us. “It’s not easy. It’s easy to tell someone to do it, but it’s not easy to overcome the resistance to do it yourself.”
The Right Music
Our discussion concludes with the role sound plays in our well-being, and how the power of music, from jazz playlists to classic rock to lofi hip hop, helped him persevere through some of his most difficult struggles. “If you put the right music to work,” Fernando observes, “you work better. If you put the right music to work out, you work out better. You know, if you want to have a romantic date, there’s a very different kind of music you’ll want to play there. Well, needless to say, it’s amazing and if you’re cognizant of what you’re choosing to hear, it will have an effect on you.”
