The Mobile Pro Podcast Studios
at PM15 (book your studio time here)
Everything here is to help you take your Podcast to the next level: Mobile Freedom.
"Hello. My name is Shawn Smith. Some call me, "The Mobile Pro", and I'm honored to be speaking at PM15 on Mobile Pro Podcasting at 11:40am on Sat.
Last year I recorded a dozen pro-quality podcast interviews ON-SITE at PM14 with leading podcasters like Natalie Sisson, Cliff Ravenscraft, Lou Mongello, Daniel J. Lewis, Jeff Brown, Darrell Darnell, Dave Jackson, Ray Ortega, and more.
I did it on my iPhone, with studio mics I carried in my backpack. It was AMAZING to capture these moments, to build relationships with these awesome podcasters in ways that can ONLY happen in-person, and to bank hours of podcast content in a couple days.
Since then, I've gone to other 6 conferences like FinCon and Florida Podfest and recorded over 40 interviews for my upcoming podcast launching this fall - all pro-quality, and all in-person. Then, I wrote a ground-breaking ebook, and creating easy, step-by-step video training to teach others how to do the same thing, in less than 1 hr of their time.
This year I'm SO excited to offer YOU the SAME opportunity: You can record pro-quality podcast interviews at PM15 at The Mobile Pro Studios (located in the vendor area, across from the Panel Rm). And the best part is: It's FREE, EASY, and FAST - even if you're a non-tech person!
(Don't have an iOS device to record with? No problem - you can borrow one of mine, or use your own recorder, or Android device - details here.)
There's 5 studios to book time in (but prime times are going fast, so book now!). These 5 studios are the 5 field-tested mic setups featured in my ebook, and my step-by-step video training, "5 Ways to Record Podcast Interviews with an iPhone". You can hear audio examples of each at the bottom of this page.
Plus, every time you book studio time (or if you attend my PM15 session), you have a chance to win over $800 in pro-podcast gear & training prizes at my RAFFLE being held on Sun, after the final keynote at 5:45pm at The Studios.
Or, you can purchase tickets! 50% of the raffle proceeds will go to support my mission work in Guatemala serving children living in extreme poverty.
Finally, there's LOTS going on at The Mobile Pro Studios. You can...

Welcome to The Mobile Pro Studios: 5 Pro-quality Mobile Studios to record interviews and podcasts from LIVE from Podcast Movement 2015 - all for FREE!
PLUS - every person who books a session gets TWO FREE RAFFLE TICKETS to our Raffle with over $800 in prizes. (drawing is Sun at 5:45pm at the Studios, after the last keynote )
The ONLY thing you need to bring, is ONE of the following recording devices:
An iOS Device running iOS7 or later (or you can borrow one of ours)
A Digital Recorder with XLR inputs (To record in Studios 3, 4, or 5)
An Android Device (You MUST record in Studio 4 with Android)
***You can NOT record with a laptop in The Mobile Pro Studios. (See Studio FAQ section for why)
It is also strongly recommended that you bring your own earbuds, or favorite headphones. We will have basic headphones available, but if you have a favorite pair, please bring them with you.
Also, if you're borrowing one of our iOS devices to record with, please bring a USB memory drive, or laptop, to transfer your podcast files to.
You can just show up, and we'll make it happen! But to have the best recording experience possible, please follow these simple steps:
1. Select the Studio best for you on our Gear Guide page. This guide has photos and links of all the gear, explains which studio is best for different recording needs. i.e. Studio 1 is for roundtable discussions, Studio 2 is for video interviews, and Studios 3, 4, and 5 are for solo podcasting OR 1-on-1 interviews. Check them out, and see which is best for you.
2. Book your Studio Session below. (limited times are available for each studio). If you're interviewing a guest, please check with them BEFORE booking your studio session, to be sure they are available.
Need a guest to interview? How about Shawn Smith, The Mobile Pro? Check my schedule here - If I'm free, I'd love to be your guest to talk about Mobile Podcasting, or my mission work in Guatemala, my music career, or anything else you'd like to chat about!
3. Forward Studio confirmation emails to your Guest. You will receive several email reminders of your studio session. If you're doing an interview, forward all of these to your guest, so they will be ready too. Also, please remind your guest(s) to bring their favorite earbuds or headphones.
4. Plan on a 30 min. interview/recording session or less, and please arrive early. Your studio session is 45 min's long, just to be sure you have enough set-up/tear-down time/chit-chat time w/your guest. Please arrive 10-15 min's early to be sure everything is set and ready-to-go at your scheduled time.
5. Need to borrow a recording device? Please arrive early. We will have 4 iOS devices for folks to borrow. Though we can NOT guarantee one for you, the earlier you arrive, the better chance we'll have one for you.
6. If using our iOS device to record, please bring a USB memory, or laptop to transfer files to after your recording. I will have a MacBook to transfer your files
7. Download your favorite recording app. If recording on a iPhone/iPad/iPod touch, I strongly recommend using BossJock Studio ($10). To get up and running as quickly and painlessly as possible, I also recommend buying my BossJock Studio training video. It's only $7, for this week only!
8. Clear space on your recording device. Make sure you have at least 500 MG of free space on your recording. Generally, you only need about 300 MG for a 30 min. interview, but we want to be sure you have PLENTY of breathing room.
9. Charge your recording device BEFORE you arrive. Please bring a fully-charged recording device, so your recording does not get interrupted. Nearly all of our studios require plugging into the power-port of your iOS device, so you can NOT charge it while recording. You can re-charge your device at our Charging Station at The Mobile Pro Studios for free! Just arrive early. 30 min's of charging should be more than enough for a 30 min. recording session.
10. Arrive early, and bring your favorite headphones! Again, we will have basic headphones available for use, but if you have your own favorite pair, please bring them, and please remind your guest to do the same!

Do you have any other resources on Mobile Pro Podcasting?
Yes! You can get my free ebook, “5 Ways to Record Podcast Interviews with an iPhone” ($47 value - it’s FREE for a limited time). It is 25 pgs chuck full of large photos, equipment links for all the gear you need, pros/cons of each setup, pro tips, and more. Get my free ebook here.
You can also hear audio samples of each studio/mic set-up indoors, outdoors, and at a coffee shop at the bottom of this blog post.
Why can't I record with my laptop at The Mobile Pro Studios?
My purpose for providing this studio is to educate, train, and encourage podcasters to record with an iOS device, or small recorder, when traveling. I am extremely confident in all the gear that I recommend, because I have field-tested it extensively. iOS recording is EXTREMELY stable, reliable, and predictible. In hundreds of recordings, on lots of devices, I've never had one of my recommended apps, or iOS device crash, or negatively affect a recording.
Plus, if podcasters are using the equipment I recommend, I can provide technical support with both the hardware, and software at The Studios, because I am intimately aware of all of their quirks, and can quickly trouble-shoot and solve any problem that may affect the recording.
With dozens of PC recording apps, and dozens more hardware configurations, I cannot guarantee a premium recording experience for the user. My apologies for any inconvenience, but my hope is to help podcaster's have a great, pro-quality mobile recording experience, and this is the best way I know how to ensure that. Thanks for your understanding.
