Castaway founder Derek Myers, built the first Podcast studio over 10 years ago while simultaneously running his boutique European scooter workshop.

Amazing Collingwood Location
Castaway Founder Derek Myers, has been operating in the same Warehouse Space in Easy St Collingwood in various guises for for over 25 Years. In this time Derek has witnessed the transformation of the local area with all heavy industry being replaced with boutique retail, hospitality and creative spaces. This old industrial part of Collingwood has now emerged as the Soho of Melbourne and the new creative heart of the city.
Part of the genesis of the evolution of Castaway Studios was the founder’s crazy creative idea for their own Podcast Show. Researching Podcast Studios in Melbourne they struggled to find one to record the show that was viable within their budget, of nothing. Not one to be deterred, they pushed on and built their own studio and produced their Podcast show to Roaring Success! (Kind of………..) With that experience behind them, they saw a real need in the market for affordable yet professional quality recording studios and opened the doors to all creative types. While the studios have evolved a long way over the years Castaway have always tried to remember what it felt like starting out. Our Castaway founder believes that not only is Castaway the Best Podcast Studio in Melbourne but also the best value for your budget, whatever that is.
