Navigating the commercial real estate industry requires specialized knowledge, keen insight, and the ability to connect with a wide range of audiences. A podcast offers a unique opportunity to provide this value. If you’re looking to take your commercial real estate podcast to the next level, here is the ultimate guide to creating a state-of-the-art podcast studio right in your office.
The Essentials: Hardware

Elevate your video quality with the Sony Alpha ZV-E10.

Capture Software: OBS Software
OBS Software is a robust, open-source solution compatible with both Mac and Windows systems for recording and live streaming. Its open canvas approach to video creation allows for a mix of audio and video sources in a single output. It can record straight to your hard drive or live-stream to several popular platforms, including YouTube, Facebook Live, and Twitch.
The setting of your podcast can say a lot about your brand. Whether it’s a formal desk, a relaxed couch, or even an unconventional lawn chair, make sure your setting resonates with the message you want to convey. There is no correct answer, but do think about comfort and posture. Some chairs can be very unflattering when you sit in them.
Proper lighting is crucial for video quality. Invest in the right lighting fixtures to give your podcast a professional look. Think about where shadows are in the scene and on the subjects. Always consider using backlighting in the form of a small lamp or light bulb. Maybe even use an Eddison bulb in your light, as this can add some warmth to your set.
Good acoustics can elevate your podcast’s audio quality to the next level. Using Sound Absorbing Acoustic Panels, rugs, and curtains can help cancel out noise and echo. Reducing noise will elevate your audio quality, make editing easier, and allow a smoother recording process.
