Sound & Vision's mini-series, Behind the Console, highlights the stories of women and nonbinary audio engineers who are navigating what is still a very male-dominated field.

Today we meet two monitor engineers. The first is Karrie Keyes, who was just on the road with Pearl Jam, and has previously worked for Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sonic Youth, Social Distortion and more. She talks about mentoring the next generation of women and nonbinary audio engineers through her organization, Sound Girls, and balancing her work with raising twins as a single mom.

We also hear from Christina Moon, who has worked with Sleater-Kinney, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem, Interpol, Death Cab for Cutie and Cat Power. She talks about managing artists' emotions on stage while delivering audio, and striving to be a good engineer, not just a good female engineer.
