We strive for the absolute BEST audio quality, so please follow these tips:
- There are TWO options for connecting as a podcast guest: PHONE or ONLINE
- If using the PHONE option, landlines can sometimes sound better than cell phones -- if you have access to both, that would be ideal. NO speakerphones.
- If using the ONLINE option for connecting with the Studio, you will need either a usb connected headset w/microphone, similar to THIS - or a usb connected microphone, similar to THIS. You will also need a computer with the Chrome browser and Internet access.
NOTE: The online connection will sound more like you are in the studio.
In order to connect, you will be emailed a link to click. Once you are connected, please close your email.
It's important that during the podcast recording that you do not use the computer for any purpose other than feeding your voice; please close email, websites, spreadsheets, or any other programs.
Be in a quiet place -- talk in a strong voice (don't drift away from the phone).
Before the podcast begins, the talk host will go over some of the questions and you can suggest things that you'd like to talk about.
Think "casual chat" - just be yourself and inject personality and humor (where appropriate). It's you and the talk host having a real conversation - using the intimate medium of audio to get the word out.
