Podcast Advice (for guests)
Getting you setup for podcasting success!
A few tips I've found that make a big difference for our guests:
- Be sure you have a good microphone.
- Show up 5-10 mins early to be sure you have not connectivity issues.
- Be sure you have the connectivity info (zoom link, etc..) the day prior.
- Send the host your pdf one sheet with a short bio and list of questions (and/or send them to a page on your site that is specifically for the media/podcasters - example).
A good microphone
If you will be on a PC/Mac, here's a low cost mic that works very well.
If you will be using your phone or an iPad, you can try to get a USB adapter like this to use the mic above, or get one that is specially made for mobile recording.
Will you be on video?
If you will be on video, I recommend a web cam light and the center cam so you are looking at the camera during your interview.
Avoid Time Zone Mixups
Use EveryTimeZone.com and reconfirm with the host.
