As podcast enthusiasts and creators, The Good Podcast Co. understands the importance of reliable and high-quality online recording platforms. There are a number of remote recording solutions out there — some great, some not so great (ahem….Zoom). We’ve put together a list of our top three recommendations for a seamless podcast recording experience. Elevating Remote Recording is our favorite and stands out as a top-notch online recording platform, particularly for remote podcast collaborations. We’ve found it to be very intuitive, deliver high-quality files, and is very reliable, which is why it gets our top spot.

Why we like it: One of its standout features is the ability to record each participant's audio locally, ensuring crystal-clear sound even in virtual conversations. The platform also supports video recording, making it an excellent choice for podcasts that incorporate video content. Additionally, Riverside offers a “producer” feature, which allows a producer to hop on and ensure that everything is recorded properly — without being a part of the recording. simplifies the post-production process by automatically separating individual audio and video tracks for each participant, saving podcasters valuable time in the editing process. 

At the time of this writing Riverside’s Standard Plan is $15/month if billed yearly or $19/month if billed monthly.

SquadCast: Bridging the Gap in Podcast Collaboration

SquadCast takes the second spot on our list, offering a robust solution for remote podcast recording and some cool post-production integrations.

Why we like it: Similar to Riverside, Squadcast offers the ability for individuals to record separate audio and video tracks from the comfort of their own spaces. Squadcast's unique 'Green Room' feature enables hosts and guests to connect and discuss before the recording starts. One of SquadCast’s best features is it’s now owned by Descript, which means each plan comes stock with some of Descript’s best post-production tools (if you plan to edit your own podcast).

At the time of this writing SquadCast’s Creator Plan is $12/month if billed yearly or $15/month if billed monthly.

Streamyard: The Swiss-Army Knife Solution

Streamyard secures the third spot on our list as a versatile online recording and streaming platform. 

Why we like it: While initially designed for live streaming, Streamyard's recording capabilities make it an attractive option for podcasters seeking a more comprehensive solution. With features like multi-platform streaming, customizable overlays, and the ability to bring in remote guests effortlessly, Streamyard caters to both live podcasting and traditional recording needs. Its integration with various social media platforms adds an extra layer of convenience for podcasters looking to expand their audience reach. We don’t think it’s the best remote recording option, but it deserves a spot on the list.

At the time of this writing Streamyard’s Basic Plan is $20/month if billed yearly or $25/month if billed monthly.

The success of a podcast begins with a solid recording foundation and tools like, SquadCast, and Streamyard make doing that remotely possible. As the podcasting landscape continues to evolve, these platforms provide podcasters with the tools they need to create professional and engaging content.
