Welcome to
Hoof & Fang
We are looking forward to a great conversation. Here are some tips to be as prepared as possible.
We record using

Prior to your scheduled recording time, you'll receive a calendar invite that includes a link to join your Riverside studio at the appointed time.

Riverside works on a Chrome web browser OR the free Riverside mobile app. Other browsers will not work.

Use Headphones or Earbuds

We want all of our guests to be comfortable, so we're not going to insist that you record from a sound booth or with special equipment.

However, to avoid any echo in the recording, please wear headphones or earbuds. When you join the Riverside studio, it will ask if you're using headphones and calibrate appropriately.

Wait a minute...

After we record, keep your browser or app open for a minute or two so Riverside can finish uploading your audio and video.

Even though a podcast is an audio medium, we have to evolve with the times. The fact is, most podcasts now have video versions on YouTube and use video for promotion on social media. 

Did you say video?
Look great on camera

When you join the studio, check your video to make sure you are...

What if I f*ck up?

The podcast is pre-recorded and will be edited prior to release. Take your time to respond. Stop and start over if you lose your train of thought or stumble on a word. We will make sure we all sound brilliant after editing.

After your recording, if you regret something you said, just let us know, and we'll cut it.

Be mindful of your environment.

Try to be in a quiet room with limited distractions.


Let folks in your life know to only disturb you if it’s an emergency.


If your computer/phone/tablet is resting on a table, be careful not to sit in a way that you are bumping the table.
