Today we’re coming to you from a studio inside a Staples. Yes, the office retailer has recently rolled out shared workspaces and podcast studios to offer their customers even more. But here we caught up with Steve Meader, the operator of Podcast New Hampshire and co-host of We Need to Talk, to discuss his impression of Staples’ awesome new facilities and what it means to podcasters and their guests.
