🎥 What are the FrazlCast and Translucidity podcasts about?
FrazlCast is a World of Warcraft (WoW) podcast in which Frazley interviews all sorts of people from the Azeroth community — the fictional world in which most of WoW is set — about who they are and what makes them tick. Translucidity, which Frazley hosts with her friend Sascz, aims to shine a light on issues the transgender community faces and to provide listeners with a better perspective on what it’s like to be transgender.
🎙️ Podcasting before SquadCast
Before starting to use SquadCast, Frazley was using Discord and recording audio locally. But, she wasn’t entirely satisfied with that process, so she was looking for a new one. When she heard an episode of School of Podcasting featuring SquadCast Co-founder Zach Moreno, she knew she had to try it — and the rest is history!
🤩 Why she uses SquadCast for recording remote podcast interviews
Frazley loves using SquadCast to record for a few main reasons. First, she loves that SquadCast backs up all her audio recordings. One time, for example, she forgot to press record for the first 15 minutes of an interview. But luckily, SquadCast’s backup feature still captured everything the guest said. Frazley was so thankful because she didn’t want to have to ask the guest to repeat all of the great things she’d already said.
“I don’t have to worry about like, okay, that person might have cut out on the internet. I still get their audio afterwards. ”
Frazley also likes the fact that the SquadCast team is ardently trying to eliminate the audio issues many other recording companies still face, like time drift. “SquadCast has made my podcast sound more professional,” she says. “I don’t have that weird audio cutoff you get when you record over something” — which is a problem she dealt with when using Discord and Skype — “It sounds much more [like the guest is] in the room.”
Lastly, Frazley appreciates that her guests don’t need to create an account or download any software applications in order to hop on SquadCast and record an interview with her. “Doing that for Skype and Discord and Zoom — that was a pain,” Frazley says.
Since she’s started using SquadCast, Frazley has never looked back — it has worked perfectly for her and saved her so much editing time.
