About Mike Boudet

The host of the show is Mike Boudet who has been active in the world of podcasting since 2007. His background in audio engineering brings a high level of quality to the show, where he combines ambient sounds, music and foley effects to tell an immersive and visceral story. Among Mike’s many interests are fiction writing, which informs his ability to unravel a story and put the listener inside the listening experience. He’s also a documentary and true-crime TV junkie and can’t get enough of shows like Unsolved Mysteries, The First 48, American Greed and others. Mike’s love of broadcasting and desire to see higher quality independent podcasts led him to create Sword and Scale in late 2013, which combines his talents perfectly into possibly the best true-crime radio show out there.
