When are the podcast studios open?

The studios are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are available for hourly and day-long bookings. Podcast whenever you like using our online booking system. Come and go as you please.

What do I need to bring to my session?

  • A laptop to record onto OR an SDcard to record onto (essential)
  • A USB-C cable —  if you’re recording to a laptop, you’ll need one to connect to the equipment (optional)
  • Adapter — if your laptop doesn't have a USB-C port, bring an adaptor too (optional)

If you're using an SDcard to record your podcast, 32GB is a good size.

What if something breaks or I need a spare?

Spares in every location! We carry lots of spares in our sites, just in case you need any further equipment or something has a fault.  You'll also find lots of spare cables and mics in our rehearsal studios if needed.

Something missing from the room or you need an item from the Spares cupboard? Hit us up on Live Chat via the website. We will be more than happy to help.

Will any staff be available to help me with my session?

Our studios are self-service, which allows us to keep costs down for you. If you have any problems please use the FAQs, live chat or call us ASAP.
