Hi! You’ve been invited to guest on the Tomorrow People podcast. This guide will help you to get everything set up. Don’t worry, it’s easy!
1. Headphones 🎧
This is pretty essential: wear headphones or earbuds during the interview. This ensures the best audio quality and prevents your microphone from accidentally picking up feedback. No headphones = horrible sound.
2. Microphone 🎤
Next, find a quiet room with little echo. A small furnished room with lots of things on the walls will often work better than an empty conference room, for example. For the best quality, use an external microphone if you have one. If you don’t have one, use a headset, or your phone’s (wired) earbuds with built-in microphone. Ultimately, you can locate the microphone on your computer, get a little closer and use that – although you should know it probably won’t sound flattering…
3. Click the link 👈🏻
We’ll send you a link to a web app we use, called Cast, to record the interview. Due to technical limitations, you need to use the Chrome browser for this, but other than that, there’s nothing to install or worry about. Just click on the link at the time we agreed for the interview. After a brief setup we should be able to hear each other.
If you have any more questions, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
