How to Record a Remote Podcast with a Co-host or Guest

Very roughly, podcasts can be divided into these formats: interviews, solo shows, and co-hosted podcasts. All formats are self-explanatory, and in this tutorial, we’ll focus on the latter — a co-hosted show. This type of podcast is hosted by two or multiple people, and the conversation flows as a discussion or debate, covering diverse topics and angles. The same goes for a podcast interview with a guest.

Such podcasts are typically very engaging, so if you’re wondering how to record it, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Waveroom account.
  2. If you previously recorded with Waveroom, click + at the top left corner to create a new recording room. If you’re a new user, skip this step.
  3. Select the video recording mode in the Record tab. By default, the Highest Device Capability mode is on. When it’s enabled, video is captured in the highest quality your device is capable of.

    If you want to record in a specific video resolution, enable the Limited Quality Mode. Click the arrow button next to the Highest Device Capability mode, then click the dot next to the Limited Quality mode and select the quality and resolution in the drop-down list.

    Note: The video recording modes apply to all participants. Learn more about the modes here. Audio is always recorded in the highest possible quality.
  4. (Optional) Enable additional features in the AI tab. Toggle on Remove Noise to cancel out extraneous sounds, Transcribe Speech to convert speech to text, and/or Create Summary to summarize what’s been said during the recording.
  5. Click the Start Test Record button if you want to check how you’ll look and sound, or click Start Meeting to begin recording.
  6. Copy the invite link. You can either copy it directly from your browser’s address bar or click the room name and select the Copy Meeting Link option in the drop-down menu.
  7. Send the link to people you want to join as your podcast speakers.
  8. Click the Record button when you’re ready to start the podcast.
  9. When you’re done, click the Stop button to end the meeting.

Wait a few seconds until the recording is saved. Once you see the Upload Completed notification at the bottom right corner, click the X sign to leave the room.

After that, you will be taken to the page where you will see a list of video and audio recordings. Here you can play and download them.

💡Tip: You can apply AI features to your recordings if you skipped this step before recording. At the bottom of the page, click Denoise to remove background noise from the audio, click Transcription to transcribe the audio to text, and/or click Summary to create an overview of the key points of your podcast.
