SaladCast Season 5 Test Reel

Posted by Rob, January 7, 2018 11:28 am

When we record the SaladCast we tend to leave the mics open for a while before we get started for real. This not only serves as a test but a chance to record some bizarre sound clip which we present to you here.
Yes Season 5 was wrapped up nearly 3 years ago now and most of this doesn’t make any sense but it still makes us smile a little bit. Enjoy.
