Apple to Provide Podcasting Studio On-Site at WWDC

Benjamin Mayo, writing for 9to5Mac:

The schedule for WWDC 2017 has just been announced and includes a new “Podcast Studio”. From Tuesday, podcasters will be able to reserve one hour slots and record in a specially-made recording studio inside the McEnery Convention Center.

Apple says that the “fully outfitted studio” allows for the creation of audio podcasts with up to four guests per show. Apple experts are on hand to provide support and podcasters are given a copy of their session to distribute freely how they see fit.

This is a great idea. I’d be all over this if I weren’t having my show in front of a live audience — recording podcasts while traveling is hard, even if you just consider the equipment you need to pack. Not sure the 60-minute limit would work for me, though.

Also, speaking of my live show, the first round of tickets should be available later today will go on sale tomorrow at 12n ET / 9a PT.
