How To Use SquadCast as a Podcast Guest

Pre-Podcast Prep

We request two things for the best possible audio and video recording outcome.

Firstly, we ask that you wear headphones of some sort; if not over-the-ear, then earbuds will do.

Secondly, if you're able, we ask that whatever computer you are using to record with us be hooked up directly to an internet ethernet cable.  This will ensure the best quality video and sound are recorded for us to edit and post!

Enter SquadCast

There is nothing to install or download!  SquadCast is an entirely browser-based program.  All you have to do is click the link that we provided when we confirmed the date and time of your recording.

When you click the link, you may be prompted by your computer to allow SquadCast access to your microphone and camera.  Make sure these are turned on and allowed.

If you aren't prompted and want to make sure they are turned on, you can double check by clicking the lock icon in the top left, in your web browser address bar.

The Green Room

Once your microphone and camera have been allowed, you will be taken to the SquadCast Green Room.  This is a private pre-interview page to ensure that everything is working (camera, microphone and sound) on your end before entering the recording space with Tom.

Make sure you can see yourself in the Green Room camera square, and make sure the VU meter in the bottom right is moving up and down when you talk.

If either of these things aren't working, make sure you choose the correct settings by clicking the drop-down menus on the left.  And for extra peace of mind, you can run an equipment test to confirm everything is running properly.

Podcast Recording Time!

Everything is set and ready to go!

When you are ready, click the "Join Session" button and I'll meet you in our recording space.

But, relax. I will not start recording till we have connected in the recording room and I've explained how it will all unfold.

Can't wait to do this recording with you for the podcast.
