You’ve probably already heard Guy Raz’ soothing voice on one of his several chart-topping podcasts, but in case you’re living under a rock (or just haven’t yet listened to his podcasts) we’ll give you a little recap of who he is:

  • He's the creator and the creative force behind How I Built This. He's also the former host and co-creator of TED Radio Hour.
  • Also the co-founder of Tinkercast, a children's media company. Guy co-created and hosts one of its programs, Wow in the World—the number one kid’s podcast in English.
  • He's also the creator/host of Wisdom from the Top, a podcast about leadership, and The Rewind on Spotify, a program about music.
  • Together, Guy's programs are heard by nearly 19 million listeners a month.
  • In 2017, Raz became the first person in the history of podcasting to have three shows in the top 20 on the Apple Podcast charts.
  • If that wasn’t enough, he’s also a two-time, New York Times bestselling author.

You get it, he’s a busy guy (pun unavoidable). Even before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Raz was recording approximately 50% of his hundreds of yearly interviews virtually, which only exacerbated the timeless need for remote recordings when the world went into lockdown.

So, his team needed a reliable, studio-quality recording solution, and urgently.

“Essentially what happened with the pandemic was all of our interviews became remote and we no longer could control the kinds of things we could control like calling up studios working with engineers. Now every guest had to be their own studio engineer, and we faced a new dilemma because now every conversation depended on that guest making a good recording.”

Award-Winning Podcast Host, How I Built This

Guy Raz’s team experimented with several different platforms and several different protocols, and all of them work to some extent in different ways. The challenge that they often faced was stability. They would be interviewing somebody and then it would drop out for five minutes, not knowing if they lost the recording and if they had to redo it.

With all these uncertainties over whether the recording was working or not, we eventually got to Riverside.fm. Guy Raz explains Riverside in his own words:

While Riverside.fm provides the studio-quality Guy Raz and his team were used to, it is very accessible for everyone, not just trained audio engineers or producers. It was this simplicity that was a major selling point for his team, as not all of Raz’s interviewees are particularly tech-savvy or have access to expert equipment.

"What was really frustrating before we started using Riverside, was that for the guest, there were several websites they needed to log into. So what we were looking for was just a really simple platform where they could just click and do nothing else."

Quality is never sacrificed with Riverside.fm

Given that Guy Raz’s podcasts are listened to by more than 19 million people per month, listeners are counting on the incredibly good quality of interviews not only in terms of content, but also in terms of audio quality. When his podcasts shifted from in-studio recordings to virtually anywhere through Riverside.fm, the quality remained consistent, which speaks volumes (pun intended).

Producer capabilities at your fingertips

While shows like Guy Raz have a team of audio engineers, producers, and more, and with social-distancing requirements, they can’t all be together recording and monitoring from Guy’s sofa… But with Riverside.fm, there are 4 options a user can be assigned: Host, Producer, Guest, and Audience. As a producer, a user can listen in on the recording and control some of its more technical aspects, but without being heard or recorded during the recording itself.

Guy Raz explaining the producer mode:

“So you know if you're on Zoom, you're either a host or guest. Right, if you are on Riverside, you're a host, a guest, or a producer, and it means that you can essentially replicate what it's like to be in a studio with a host and a guest with glass, and then a producer sitting behind the glass controlling the conversation. The producer's not recorded so it doesn't create, you know, more data and doesn't create bandwidth challenges. And so for my teams, that's been super helpful. To be able to kind of act as the conductor, but also not to be recorded or to be part of the interview.”

Centralize all your recordings and post-production edits in one place

Doesn’t matter if you record your podcast solo or with a team of 5,000—keeping track of all your episodes, media clips, intros and outros, interviews, and more, can be extremely challenging.

Luckily, with Riverside.fm your entire team can keep track of all interviews, recordings, separate audio and video tracks, and edits in one place.

You’ve probably already heard Guy Raz’ soothing voice on one of his several chart-topping podcasts, but in case you’re living under a rock (or just haven’t yet listened to his podcasts) we’ll give you a little recap of who he is:

  • He's the creator and the creative force behind How I Built This. He's also the former host and co-creator of TED Radio Hour.
  • Also the co-founder of Tinkercast, a children's media company. Guy co-created and hosts one of its programs, Wow in the World—the number one kid’s podcast in English.
  • He's also the creator/host of Wisdom from the Top, a podcast about leadership, and The Rewind on Spotify, a program about music.
  • Together, Guy's programs are heard by nearly 19 million listeners a month.
  • In 2017, Raz became the first person in the history of podcasting to have three shows in the top 20 on the Apple Podcast charts.
  • If that wasn’t enough, he’s also a two-time, New York Times bestselling author.

You get it, he’s a busy guy (pun unavoidable). Even before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Raz was recording approximately 50% of his hundreds of yearly interviews virtually, which only exacerbated the timeless need for remote recordings when the world went into lockdown.

So, his team needed a reliable, studio-quality recording solution, and urgently.

“Essentially what happened with the pandemic was all of our interviews became remote and we no longer could control the kinds of things we could control like calling up studios working with engineers. Now every guest had to be their own studio engineer, and we faced a new dilemma because now every conversation depended on that guest making a good recording.”

Guy Raz’s team experimented with several different platforms and several different protocols, and all of them work to some extent in different ways. The challenge that they often faced was stability. They would be interviewing somebody and then it would drop out for five minutes, not knowing if they lost the recording and if they had to redo it.

With all these uncertainties over whether the recording was working or not, we eventually got to Riverside.fm. Guy Raz explains Riverside in his own words:

While Riverside.fm provides the studio-quality Guy Raz and his team were used to, it is very accessible for everyone, not just trained audio engineers or producers. It was this simplicity that was a major selling point for his team, as not all of Raz’s interviewees are particularly tech-savvy or have access to expert equipment.

"What was really frustrating before we started using Riverside, was that for the guest, there were several websites they needed to log into. So what we were looking for was just a really simple platform where they could just click and do nothing else."

Quality is never sacrificed with Riverside.fm

Given that Guy Raz’s podcasts are listened to by more than 19 million people per month, listeners are counting on the incredibly good quality of interviews not only in terms of content, but also in terms of audio quality. When his podcasts shifted from in-studio recordings to virtually anywhere through Riverside.fm, the quality remained consistent, which speaks volumes (pun intended).

Producer capabilities at your fingertips

While shows like Guy Raz have a team of audio engineers, producers, and more, and with social-distancing requirements, they can’t all be together recording and monitoring from Guy’s sofa… But with Riverside.fm, there are 4 options a user can be assigned: Host, Producer, Guest, and Audience. As a producer, a user can listen in on the recording and control some of its more technical aspects, but without being heard or recorded during the recording itself.

“Essentially what happened with the pandemic was all of our interviews became remote and we no longer could control the kinds of things we could control like calling up studios working with engineers. Now every guest had to be their own studio engineer, and we faced a new dilemma because now every conversation depended on that guest making a good recording.”

Guy Raz’s team experimented with several different platforms and several different protocols, and all of them work to some extent in different ways. The challenge that they often faced was stability. They would be interviewing somebody and then it would drop out for five minutes, not knowing if they lost the recording and if they had to redo it.

With all these uncertainties over whether the recording was working or not, we eventually got to Riverside.fm. Guy Raz explains Riverside in his own words:

While Riverside.fm provides the studio-quality Guy Raz and his team were used to, it is very accessible for everyone, not just trained audio engineers or producers. It was this simplicity that was a major selling point for his team, as not all of Raz’s interviewees are particularly tech-savvy or have access to expert equipment.

"What was really frustrating before we started using Riverside, was that for the guest, there were several websites they needed to log into. So what we were looking for was just a really simple platform where they could just click and do nothing else."

Quality is never sacrificed with Riverside.fm

Given that Guy Raz’s podcasts are listened to by more than 19 million people per month, listeners are counting on the incredibly good quality of interviews not only in terms of content, but also in terms of audio quality. When his podcasts shifted from in-studio recordings to virtually anywhere through Riverside.fm, the quality remained consistent, which speaks volumes (pun intended).

Producer capabilities at your fingertips

While shows like Guy Raz have a team of audio engineers, producers, and more, and with social-distancing requirements, they can’t all be together recording and monitoring from Guy’s sofa… But with Riverside.fm, there are 4 options a user can be assigned: Host, Producer, Guest, and Audience. As a producer, a user can listen in on the recording and control some of its more technical aspects, but without being heard or recorded during the recording itself.

Guy Raz explaining the producer mode:

Centralize all your recordings and post-production edits in one place

Doesn’t matter if you record your podcast solo or with a team of 5,000—keeping track of all your episodes, media clips, intros and outros, interviews, and more, can be extremely challenging.

Luckily, with Riverside.fm your entire team can keep track of all interviews, recordings, separate audio and video tracks, and edits in one place.

You’ve probably already heard Guy Raz’ soothing voice on one of his several chart-topping podcasts, but in case you’re living under a rock (or just haven’t yet listened to his podcasts) we’ll give you a little recap of who he is:
