Preparation Sheet and Interview Questions
We’d like to do a small interview segment with you for the episode you’ll be featured in. For this some preparation is required, so things will go as smoothly as possible during recording. Please make sure to read this text thoroughly.
Some things are required of you for you to be able to participate in the first place. Things you’ll need are:
- A working microphone, which is set up accordingly to work error-free with your computer and Discord
- Discord app and access to our Discord Server (you’ll be invited before recording)
- Being able to attend the recording session, no matter your own Timezone (time and date of the session will be given to you in due time, of course)
Alternative: a pre-recorded session at a time of day when you’d be able to attend
- Having read the interview questions (see below) and at least somewhat prepared answers for them
- You need to be able to understand English on an advanced conversational level and being able to speak it on at least an intermediate level since the Podcast’s main language is English.
- Bonus: Audacity or a similar program to record your own voice during the recording session (record/export @ 44100Hz, mp3, 170-210kbps)
If you experience any (technical) issues that need fixing, please let us know in a timely fashion so we’ll be able to assist you before the actual recording will take place. So if you need assistance, let us know in time!
Interview – Questions
Only some of them may be asked during the interview, but best prepare answers for all of them, just to be… you know, prepared, hrh. If there is a question you wouldn’t want to answer, please tell us beforehand, so we can leave it out.
