MobileViews Mini-podcast 44: Initial attempt to use Google Meet to record a podcast

Paul Lawler helped me test using Google Meet to record a podcast using its built-in recording feature. It was supposed to be a 3 to 5 minute effort. Unfortunately, one of the extensions in Google Chrome blocked video from me and audio from Paul to me. Fortunately, it occured to me to run Google Meet in a Chrome Incognito window which would not have any extensions. This worked. However, we noticed well into the mini-podcast recording session that Paul’s video was not transmitting. This was fixed by his turnng video on his end off and then back on.
This was not exactly a frictionless exercise. Fortunately, it was a valuable learning exercise. We also discussed the friction involved in using Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Apple Facetime, Descript,, and Adobe Podcast Studio beta to record podcasts with remote participants.
