Our Studio

The Big Bark is recorded weekly from Ballyneety, Co. Limerick. Using a blend of state of the art podcast hardware – Zoom Podtrak P4 and high quality Tonor XLR microphones along with studio editing software including Adobe Audition, Audacity and Spreaker Studio, the quality of the podcast is second to none. Our recording kit is also 100% mobile meaning we can record on the go. As the Covid-19 pandemic comes to an end, we will be taking our recording studio on the road to meet with guests face to face for the first time in 15 months.

While the primary studio is undergoing renovations with the installation of Soundproof insulation wall & Roof panels, recording continues each week with new episodes broadcast each Thursday with no compromise in audio quality.
