Tips for a Great Interview

  • Turn off any notifications or distractions, such as cell phones, ringers, and computer notifications.

  •  “Listen” to your room. If you hear sounds of others talking, traffic, or any other environmental sounds, this can significantly reduce the quality of the finished podcast please find the quietest, echo-free space you can.

  • Remove any jewelry, such as rattling bracelets and/or necklaces. If you are using earbuds, be sure the microphone is not brushing up against your collar.

  • If you are using a headset, move the microphone toward your chin to avoid any heavy breath sounds.
