A Shared Universe Podcast Studio in Eatontown, New Jersey, has reopened, courtesy of owners, Ming Chen and Michael Zapcic, better known for appearing in AMC's Comic Book Men.

"We are excited to re-open our studio after being closed during the shutdown for three months. As the world has changed, the services we provide have become increasingly valuable to local businesses, officials, and community leaders," said Chen. "They can either come to the safe environment of our studio in Eatontown for a podcast, where social distancing and extra sanitization will be in effect, or we can live stream them from the comfort of their own home or office to reach their audiences online."

"Podcasting is the future of entertainment and digital marketing" added Zapcic. "What's great about this medium is that anyone can start a podcast about any topic they want, without any restrictions, and no experience is necessary. Our team at A Shared Universe does all the technical work, making it easy for everyone to succeed."

A Shared Universe Podcast Studio is located at 1 Main Street, Suite 501, in Eatontown, New Jersey. They state that they "redefine the traditional recording studio by creating a "pop culture friendly" space with state-of-the-art equipment that is geared specifically for podcasting". A Shared Universe is a hub of podcasting worldwide, both in-studio and for online recordings.

A Shared Universe opened its doors in 2018 and is located five miles south of Jay & Silent Bob's Secret Stash store in downtown Red Bank, the setting of the AMC TV Reality Show "Comic Book Men". It is one mile north of the Monmouth Mall and Garden State Parkway Exit 109.

Ming and Mike say that they see this as an opportunity to assist everyone in taking their first steps on their podcast journey and to help experienced podcasters become even better. And promise that clients should also expect help marketing their podcasts via Chen and Zapcic's wide social media reach. Other services offered include podcasting classes for beginners and experts, podcasting meetups, and movie and television show viewing parties featuring reaction podcasts immediately afterwards.

To date, Chen and Zapcic have helped launch over 100 podcasts and count many well-known actors, actresses, models and musicians as clients and podcast guests including their own boss Kevin Smith, Impractical Jokers' Brian "Q" Quinn, model Paulina Porizkova, *NSYNC's Joey Fatone, Taboo from The Black Eyed Peas and actor Ross Marquand (Avengers: Endgame, The Walking Dead.)
