What is the difference between a live show and a podcast?
Live shows are streamed in real-time on our website and mobile app. Podcasts are on-demand audiofiles accessed via podcast listening apps.
What is the process for being part of the Motor City Woman Radio Network?
You must be a live show to be part of the MCW Network. You can submit the Client Intake Form and a team member will schedule a time to discuss your show.
What are the benefits to being part of the MCW Network?
Being a live show on the MCW Network gives you access to marketing via our social media platforms, e-newsletter and website. You are able to accept live callers during your show. Your recorded shows will also be shared on our SoundCloud page, at no additional cost to you.
How can I decide if I should be a live show or a podcast?
This decision generally comes down to your time availability. Live shows broadcast on a specific day and time. A podcast is pre-recorded and can be shared at your discretion via various podcast directories.
I think I’m ready to launch my podcast. What are my initial steps?
You must complete the Client Intake Form and select a podcast package. Upon submitting, a team member will contact you to discuss your podcast.
I want to do a podcast but, know nothing about what goes into sharing it with the world. Help!
At Motor City Woman Studios, the only thing you need to concentrate on is your content. We will handle the rest! Check out the Packages page to learn more.
My podcast is already active. I just need to use the studio for a few interviews.
No problem! If interviewing guests at coffee shops and libraries has grown tiresome, reserve recording time at Motor City Woman Studios. We will edit the file and then send it to you for sharing.
Can I use licensed music in my live show or podcast?
Yes and No. Motor City Woman Radio has a music license to stream music. However, since we do not own the rights to the music; we can not include it in downloadable files such as Soundcloud and podcasts. We will work with you to identify and secure appropriate music for your podcast. You are welcome to give us music that you have had produced especially for your podcast.
How many people can the studio accommodate?
Our custom-made recording table features 5 industry-grade ElectroVoice microphones.
What are the costs to record at the studio?
Costs range depending on the project. Visit our Services page for a list of available projects. In general, recording time starts at $75 per hour. Have a project idea? Contact us for a customized package!
My guest is in another state/country. Can I interview them at your studio?
Yes! We have the capacity to accommodate 2 call-in guests simultaneously.
Are kids allowed in the studio?
Not only are kids allowed – they are welcomed! Motor City Woman Studios was intentionally designed for family. Our lounge area offers free WIFI and space for kids to stretch out. As long as their guardian keeps them quiet (unless they’re part of the recording), babies and kids can come on in!
How can my community group collaborate with Motor City Woman Studios?
