One of the most amazing things about podcasting and video shows is that they allow you to communicate with people all over the world. With some of the software services that are available to everyone, remote podcasts recordings, or episodes with guests based in different locations become super easy!
We’ve found that having a simple way to record our podcast and video episodes remotely lend themselves to being able to bring different voices into the show, as well as allowing us to continue producing consistent original content when things become more and more unpredictable.
Remote Podcasting Gear:
- Audio-Technica BP40 Dynamic Broadcast Microphone
- Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Headphones
- RØDE AI-1 USB Audio Interface
- Panasonic G7
- Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 Lens
- Blackmagic Ultra Studio Mini Recorder
We’re using the Panasonic G7 with the Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 Lens which gives us a super wide shot, but great depth. This is fed into the Blackmagic Ultra Studio Mini Recorder via HDMI, allowing us to bring the clean feed into any program that takes a webcam – Skype, FaceTime, Zoom etc.
Remote Podcasting Recording Software
After testing out the different programs for video conferencing, we discovered that Zoom handled everyone’s internet connection best, and had high-quality video and audio, along with an extremely easy way to record the call!
We just send out an invitation link for people to join the meeting, press record using Zoom’s built-in recorder, and go live on YouTube using Zoom’s live streaming features.
What’s great about Zoom is the ability to support so many participants. Here’s an episode we did with some of our VIP Gronks!
We’re excited about the next iteration of live streaming and our remote setups. In the next few weeks, we’ll start using live streaming software vMix to create a more dynamic and engaging experience!
