Zoom

The Dream Highway Podcast guest interviews are recorded to separate audio tracks, so if there is an audio problem on either end, it will not effect the other person’s audio.

To ensure we get the best audio quality from our Zoom call, you will want to have Original Sound enabled. Please follow these simple instructions to set that up.

Rest assured that we will make sure that all of your audio settings are working properly before we begin recording.
