  • RØDECaster Pro Integrated Podcast Unit
  • 4 x Rode Procaster Mic

How much does a podcast studio cost?


Podcast studios are the same price throughout the week. A discounted rate is available for bookings over one-hour long. For the latest prices, check the booking calendar.

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, so you don't have to contact us (unless you'd like to and have a great joke you wanna share).

If something is missing from the room or you need something from the spares cupboard, hit us up on Live Chat via the website, where we will be more than happy to help.

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


Our studios are self-service, if you have any problems please use the FAQs, live chat or call us.

If you have any equipment issues, we can help troubleshoot — the sooner you let us know, the better. We have replacement gear on-site in case of any technical faults.
