Bob’s intention with this show is to engage in deep yet fun conversations around money to release any shame associated with not having it all together with money. He wants to show everyone that we are not alone when it comes to our relationship with money.

TIP: Test your internet speed here
Recommended Device Storage
We recommend having at least 5 GB of free space available on your device to store your locally-recorded, separated track in your temporary files as it uploads.
TIP: Check how much storage space your browser can access.
Step 6. Connecting with Bob on Riverside.fm

Before you begin, close all other applications that don’t need to be open during the recording. This prevents overload on your computer or mobile device. And please close all other programs/apps that use your mic/camera.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a separate microphone?
We do recommend the use of an external microphone and the use of headphones or earphones. This will prevent any prominant echoes or feedback looping in the recording. Although Riverside does offer an echo cancellation feature, it is not always fool proof.
Do you release audio and video of the podcast?
Yes. We release an audio version which is uploaded to all the various podcast apps and sites. We also release a video version on YouTube and other video based platforms. We will also release clips on our social media channels to promote the episode.
Can we use Zoom Video App to record the epsiode? I am not familiar with Riverside.fm.
Zoom Video App is a video conferencing app. It is not a dedicated audio recording platform tailored to podcasting like Riverside.fm. Many podcasters choose to use Zoom, but we prefer to use Riverside as it is a much higher quality recording.
Riverside.fm provides us with high quality recordings that you can download a separate tracks. Which is ideal for editing. After the recording, a local recording is where the audio and the video are recorded on your device then uploaded to the cloud to be downloaded afterwards.
This is different than an internet recording from Zoom. The audio and video is compressed and only available to download in lower quality. The quality of the internet recording is dependent on the internet connection, and usually the resolution is lower than a local recording. Internet recordings are usually compressed, which further degrades the quality.
Where do I find the link to take me into the recording session?
On the week of your scheduled recording session, (usually 2 days prior) we will contact you via email to confirm your scheduled recording session. We will also provide you with the relevant link to connect with Bob on Riverside.fm. If you require the link to be sent to you earlier, please notify us.
