Congrats! You're gonna be on OT 4 Lyfe!

Here's some important info:

Scheduling your interview

  1. The recording usually lasts about an hour to an hour and a half, maybe more if there is a lot of information to cover.
  2. The recording block is set for 3 hours to accommodate for tech troubleshooting and questions.
  3. All interviews will be done through Zoom.us.
    • Once we have scheduled a time for the interview, you should receive an email with information and a link to the interview session. If you don’t, please let me know at SarahOT4Lyfe@gmail.com.
  4. Use this link to schedule your interview: OT 4 Lyfe Interview Schedule.

Audio

  1. If you have a external mic, that would be best. If not, don’t sweat it, your phone ear buds will be fine.
  2. It is also better to use a headset. Again, your ear buds will work fine.
  3. Try to be in a quiet room, that doesn’t echo and somewhere you won’t be interrupted.
  4. Unlike a normal conversation, breaks and dead space are our friends.
    • If you get stuck, just pause, let me know and start over. Editing is magic.
    • They also allow for me or someone else (if doing a multiple person interview) to jump in.

The interview

  1. We will briefly chat before we start recording to check audio and make sure everything is working properly.
  2. It’s my aim to make this a conversation, not put you on the spot.
  3. This is an opportunity for the audience to get to know you better.
  4. You have an interesting story and lots to share, so think about what knowledge and experience you have that is unique and will benefit the audience.
  5. Think about what is ok to talk about or not ok to talk about.
    • Is there anything specific that you want to discuss?
    • We can take out anything afterwards, if you have second thoughts.
  6. Be natural, be yourself, be excited and most importantly, have fun!

Questions

  1. Feel free to email me at SarahOT4Lyfe@gmail.com with questions before our scheduled time.
  2. Also, let me know if you have any questions before we start, when we’re on the actual interview call.
  3. You can hear past episodes to get an idea of how my episodes usually flow here: https://ot4lyfe.com/podcast.
