Our Story

In January of 2012, Michael Casentini, an aspiring comedian and small business owner of a website development business, founded “The Network Studios” out of his 1 bedroom apartment in Los Angeles, California. 11 years ago, with just 4 microphones and a roster made up of mostly comedic talent from Mike’s friend pool, began to help produce Podcast shows in a serial capacity. Over time, he continued to improve the studio environment, adding 4 more microphones as well as other devices and solutions, which have helped the company expand into new services including a live streaming video option. Today, The Network Studios, who produce on a regular basis, both Podcasts and VODcasts and have serviced over hundreds of customers around the country and the world.
