Description: Jarod has produced a video detailing the setup of his new podcasting studio which enables him to take live phone calls from landline callers, cell phone callers and Skype callers. Jarod can call people worldwide via his iPhone or via Skype, talk with them live and stream the resulting content live to YouTube so anyone on his channel can hear the call. In this instructional video Jarod has made the process of setting up a live call in show simple to understand and easy to implement by labeling everything carefully, colour coding the cabling and equipment and getting the whole thing down to a simple, repeatable process. Jarod takes you through how he setup his professional podcasting studio, lists all of the equipment he used including all the cables (and their lengths) that he used to connect it all up and tells you the prices he paid for everything so that you have quite an accurate idea of what this will cost should you embark on a similar venture (around $10,000 Australian dollars). A must see video for anyone looking to setup a podcasting studio and accept live phone calls on the air from land line callers, cell phone callers and Skype callers. Please note that Jarod is an amateur at audio production and has done the best he could given his knowledge, skills and experience. Should you have more experience in this subject Jarod is most interested in hearing from you as he is always interested in improving upon his set up and helping others to do the same.
