INFORMATION FOR GUESTS APPEARING ON INSIDE AGRI-TURF PODCAST

INTRODUCTION

Inside Agri-Turf podcast was launched in July 2020 by Chris Biddle after he had studied podcast production and audio editing during the UK nationwide lockdown period 

The podcast has published over 100 episodes, has had  more than 10,000 downloads and is listened to in more than 20 countries

 

RECORDING NOTES FOR GUESTS

I send a summary of the intended questions and discussion points, together with joining link before the recording 

 

I am now using Squadcast recording software instead of Zoom due to better audio quality. It is also owned by Descript, my editing and transcription software so I am able to upload directly.

 

Use an external microphone and headphones if possible – but not essential

 

When clicking your Squadcast link for the recording, you will first join the Green Room (sorry no wine or nibbles!). 

 

There you can check your mic and sound by recording a 10 sec test which is immediately available to play back. 

 

If happy, click Join Session – where we will meet up.

 

We would normally have a brief chat about the content etc, before I press Record  

The video is recorded but not used for the podcast.  However there may be times when I would like to use a video snippet for promotion  

 

Let the host know of any ‘no-go’ areas or topics

The recording can be paused at any time.

FINALLY, the podcast recording is not LIVE!  

 

POST RECORDING

The recording will be edited to remove any audio blemishes, interruptions, excess ‘uhms, aahs’, repeated answers etc

A preview of the final version will be sent to participants for approval before it is published.

​Most interviews will last around 30-40 minutes, although this may vary with content.

 

​Inside Agri-Turf is available on all the usual hosting platforms including Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, Amazon music, Spotify, Stitcher and others.

  • Remember it's a chat, not an interview!

  • Dip into a few recent episodes to familiarise yourself with the style and content

  • Make some notes on the points you want to get across during the recording

  • Make sure you are in as quiet place as possible

  • Let the host know of any ‘no-go’ areas or topics

  • Test the audio and the microphone in advance on Zoom

  • If you want to stop during the recording, no problem! Just say stop and this can all be edited out afterwards.

  • Have some water available before and during the recording

  • Treat it as a conversation, not an interview.

  • You will sent a copy of the recording before it is published If you find you said something that you would rather have not, then just say and it can be edited out. It’s happened a few times.

  • Finally, relax and enjoy. The recording is not being ‘broadcast’ live, so the pressure is off!
