2019 has proved itself a watershed year for podcasting. In addition to achieving global recognition as an influential information/entertainment format, podcasts have motivated the construction of major production facilities in New York, Los Angeles, and other major cities around the U.S. While these complex facilities would seem to be focused on traditional production/post-production services, the nature of Podcast production requires a number of purpose-built design considerations unique to the medium. This panel will explore the priorities of Gimlet Media and Stitcher, two of the largest, most successful, most sophisticated and most prominent players in the field. Parallels and contrasts in technology choices, physical design and acoustic requirements will be discussed. Floor plans and a selection of high quality photos will reveal the inner workings of both these showplace facilities.
