what makes us different
What we can do for you
At Switch and Board, our studio rental is billed on an hourly basis, and you will have the entire hour dedicated to your recording session. We encourage you to maximize your time by recording multiple episodes within that hour. However, please note that accommodating guests for multiple episodes in a single hour may be challenging. If your recording session exceeds the allotted hour, an additional hour will be added to your invoice. Maintaining a smooth schedule is essential to us, and we appreciate your understanding in this matter.
While being late is understandable, we want to emphasize that your scheduled session begins at the agreed-upon time, whether you arrive punctually or with a delay. If you happen to be running late, please be aware that the lost time due to your delay cannot be made up. However, if you anticipate needing extra time when you are running behind schedule, feel free to reach out to us in advance, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. Your punctuality is appreciated, and we aim to ensure a smooth recording experience for you.
Following your session, we will promptly share your files through Google Drive unless you prefer an alternative cloud storage option. However, it’s important to note that if your recording involves 4K video, the resulting files may be substantial in size, potentially requiring more time for uploading. Additionally, a strong and stable internet connection will be necessary for downloading these files. We recommend considering these factors to ensure a smooth file transfer process.
Rest assured that our studio is equipped with a robust 800 Mbps internet connection, ensuring that remote sessions run seamlessly, almost as if your guest were sitting right beside you.
We understand that some conversations become even more engaging as time passes, and you may wish to extend your recording session. If the schedule permits and there is availability after your session, we are more than happy to accommodate your request for additional recording time. Your extension will be subject to schedule availability, as we value and prioritize each of our clients’ time.
Switch and Board is a fully equipped studio, so you don’t need to bring anything for your session. However, if you wish to bring a full video crew for your session, please contact us in advance so that we can make the necessary arrangements. It’s important to note that bringing your own equipment won’t impact the session fees.
Our cancellation policy stipulates that we require at least 24 hours’ notice before your scheduled session. If you inform us within that timeframe, we’ll be glad to provide a full refund or help you reschedule your session. We understand that unforeseen last-minute changes can occur, but it’s important to keep in mind that if you cancel your session just a few hours before its scheduled time, we won’t have the opportunity to book that slot for other clients. Therefore, the 24-hour notice is our cutoff point.
Regrettably, we don’t have dedicated parking facilities, but Dupont Circle provides several paid parking garages in the vicinity of our studio. Alternatively, you can search for street parking, although we cannot guarantee the availability of a spot at your desired time. Therefore, if you plan to drive to the studio, please allocate some extra time for parking to ensure that your schedule stays on track.
Our regular operating hours are from 9 am to 7 pm on weekdays and 10 am to 4 pm on weekends. However, if you require access to the studio outside of these hours, please don’t hesitate to contact us, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. Please be mindful that accessing the studio beyond our standard operating hours may incur a late-hour fee.
In 2019, Selcuk Karaoglan embarked on a new venture by founding The Switch and Board Podcast Studio. His journey began when he searched for an affordable studio in Washington, DC, only to encounter difficulties in finding the right fit. With 15 years of experience in the IT field, Selcuk decided to create a space that offered high-quality services at accessible prices, eliminating the barriers that often make studios feel exclusive.
Switch and Board Podcast Studio was born from Selcuk’s vision of providing an environment where anyone could access top-notch recording facilities without feeling like they were entering an exclusive club. Instead of imposing stringent membership requirements, Selcuk wanted the studio to be akin to a friendly neighborhood bar, welcoming all who sought to realize their creative potential.
In addition to his role as the founder of the studio, Selcuk is deeply involved in its day-to-day operations. He ensures that every individual who steps in front of the microphone receives the highest quality support and service, embodying Switch and Board Podcast Studio’s commitment to excellence.
