Please ensure that you have a reliable internet connection during your interview. Using a laptop computer’s built-in microphone will result in poor audio quality. If you do not own an external microphone, we recommend you order a Logitech ClearChat USB Microphone from Amazon before your interview. We will not do interviews with guests that use a mobile phone. 

A typical interview is 40 minutes in length, although you should allocate 45 minutes to allow for sound check and brief discussion before and after the interview. To help minimize background noises or possible interruptions (technological or otherwise), please ensure that you are in a private/enclosed area at the time of the interview. The interview will be professionally edited before it is published to help minimize background noises, volume fluctuations, and in some cases, verbal slip-ups.
