Over one million new podcasts were launched in 2020, almost all of which were hosted and recorded remotely. If there’s anything we’ve learned from the last few years, remote work is here to stay. 

Despite the collective comfortability of digital connections in other areas of our lives, there is still trepidation among some podcasters and podcast guests to fully embrace remote interviews. And those that are hesitant might be missing out! 

The landscape of podcasting has changed; with it, remote interviews can take your podcast to the next level. 

Here are FIVE reasons we think remote interviews can be better than in-person interviews. 

1. Save Time and Money

With remote interviews, you avoid the extensive set-up of bulky equipment, saving you time and money. As a result, one million new people got into the podcasting game in 2020 with low-lift and low-cost investments on the front end. 

USB mics and online recording platforms like Zoom, Riverside, Zencastr and a host of others have leveled the playing field for podcasting and made it easier for everyone to jump in! 

2. Attract Great Guests

A top-tier guest can increase your marketability on social media and discoverability on podcast platforms like Apple and Spotify. Additionally, podcasts with guests tend to get more listeners and downloads.

Remote interviews lower the barrier of entry to attracting guests with time or location constraints. A remote interview is often an easier yes for your guest. (And when they say yes, we got you covered with four steps to successfully prep remote podcast guests!)

3. Utilize Professional Expertise

With remote interviews, you no longer need to be tech-savvy to record a great podcast. Online platforms take the complication out of recording quality audio, and it’s never been easier to tap into the expertise of audio and podcasting professionals like Podcircle to help you produce, edit, and promote a quality podcast. 

We are experts at launching and running successful podcasts. So let us go to work for you! 

4. Have a Backup

Technology can be fickle. There’s no worse feeling than ending a great conversation and realizing you lost something. Remote interviews make recording backup audio locally and in-platform easy to ensure you never miss a moment. 

5. Make Your Content Go Farther With Video

Video provides a competitive edge in podcasting. From social media assets to YouTube content and beyond, video has the potential to pay incredible dividends for your podcast promotion and discoverability. Despite this, only 17% of podcasters record video.

With remote interviews, you don’t need a podcast studio and expensive video and audio equipment to record quality content. Online platforms record audio and video that can be edited for promotion and additional content purposes, exponentially increasing how you can utilize and present your content! 

It’s time to tap into the power and potential of remote podcast interviews!
