Award winning podcast records at Sunshine Coast studio

The StoryCast Studio, which is located at Kawana Library, is acoustically treated and is free for community members with a current library membership to use. 

The space provides users with access to quality microphones, a podcast production mixer/interface, Audacity editing software and the library’s free WiFi.

Hamish Adams-Cairns and Victoria Vanstone, podcast hosts of ‘Sober Awkward’ have been recording their weekly episodes in the StoryCast studio since November 2023. Hamish said the podcast was about the weird and the wonderful world of sobriety.

“We tell our worst stories so that other people that used to drink, or still do can feel less embarrassed about theirs,” Hamish said.

Last year the podcast was awarded Australian Wellness Podcast of the Year at the Australian Podcast Awards.

The pair started recording in the StoryCast Studio because of the professional setup.

“We used to record in Victoria’s four-year old’s bedroom, which is not professional at all,” Hamish said.

Victoria said a lot of people work from home now, and it’s nice to come out, be in the library around people, and the equipment is amazing.

Since opening in 2021, many members of the community have utilised these podcast facilities to develop new digital skills, record and produce their podcasts and more.

The StoryCast Studio allows anyone to explore, create and produce podcast content on any subject that is of interest in a welcoming environment. Libraries are expanding their reach into new technology and making it available to the community for free.

To book a session at the StoryCast Studio visit the Sunshine Coast Libraries website.
