Recording Instructions.png

For a quality sound on your end, it is all about having the right tools and creating the best environment!

It is best to use a headset or earbuds with a microphone. It is ideal for you to utilize something other than the built-in computer microphone and speakers as this can cause undesirable sound disturbances.

  • Find a quiet space where you are less likely to be interrupted and with limited background noise, as that is very difficult to edit out.

  • Turn off all fans, furnace, and AC - anything that creates ambient background noise.

  • Be sure to MUTE or turn OFF all phone and computer notifications. For Apple device users, set your devices to "Do Not Disturb" or "Focus".

  • Please wear comfortable clothing and eliminate any noisy jewelry.

  • Find a comfortable space to relax for the recording. Try your best not to fidget with items during recording. The more comfortable and still you are, the better you will sound.

Your episode will be edited to clean up the sound quality and to remove filler words (uh's, um's, and like's). Don't worry, we all do it! Please trust that we do not rearrange your words or statements.

Remember, podcast recordings are best when it feels more like a conversation and less of an interview. The goal is to engage in a collective conversation, one that the audience feels like they are immersed in, while you as a guest feel like your true self in.
