How long is each episode?

Your recording session will be 30 minutes long so that we have adequate time for tech checks & topic alignment before recording.

The final episode will be ~20-30 minutes long.

Is the show audio or video?

The show is primarily audio, although we do record video when possible for YouTube and social media clips. It would be great to have you on camera, if possible. If not, no worries, and we can focus on only recording audio.

How to prepare for your interview:
  1. Use your computer - Please use your computer for recording, not your phone. This will ensure we have the best quality possible.
  2. Google Chrome is preferred - If possible, please have Google Chrome open during the interview. This enables us to record an audio backup of the interview. If you don’t have Google Chrome, it’s okay, but it’s preferred.
  3. Remove distractions - Please be in a quiet area where you will not be disturbed, and silence all notifications on your computer and mobile device.
  4. Audio quality - Please use the best microphone you have available. If you do not have a microphone then use, at minimum, a pair of earbuds or a headset. This ensures the best audio quality for the listener.
  5. Raise your webcam to eye level (you can stack your computer on top of books if needed).
  6. Ensure that the light is in front of you and not behind you. If you have a window, set your computer with the window behind your computer screen so there is adequate light on your face.
How will this be recorded?

We will record your interview via Zoom. Please make sure to have Zoom installed on your computer prior to the interview.
