Podcast Prep

Thank you *so much* for being a part of the Birthful podcast! I’m looking forward to speaking with you.

If you want to listen to what the show sounds like in advance, you can check out some of the past episodes here on the website (where you’ll also be able to see what the show notes look like), or you can listen directly on Apple Podcasts.

To make the process flow, below you will find information that covers the logistics and technical aspects of the show.

 

Before our scheduled recording:

Please send me the following in advance.

If we are recording an interview:

  • Email me a short bio
  • Email me your high-resolution headshot (at least 800 px on the shortest side)
  • Email me links to any information that would be relevant for me to look at before recording, and/or that you would like me to share with the listeners in the show notes
  • Fill out the online release (you will receive an email link)

If you are sharing your story/stories:

  • Email me several images that relate to or help illustrate your story/journey. Some examples are photos from your birth, of you/your baby/your house during the postpartum period, pictures of your partner and your baby, or pics of you breastfeeding. Whatever makes most sense with your story! (Here’s what that could look like.) Ideally, images are 800 px on their shortest side. If you had a birth photographer, I’ll more than happy to include their name and link to their website if you/they’d like.
  • Email me links to any information that would be relevant for me to look at before recording, and/or that you would like me to share with the listeners in the show notes
  • Fill out the online release (you will receive an email link).
  • Test the voice memo app on your phone
  • (Optional) A short bio and your high-resolution headshot (at least 800 px on the shortest side)

 

How we record:

We will record using Squadcast and the voice memo app on your phone. We will email your personal recording link before our talk, along with details about how we record.

For the best possible sound:

We want to make sure you sound fantastic! Here are a few ways you can ensure that:

  • Have a good internet connection. Please go to speedtest.net to verify your internet speed. You want at least 1.5 Mbps up/download speed and hopefully 5 Mbps or more, to avoid connection issues. If your computer is wired directly to the internet (instead of wi-fi), even better!
  • Minimize noises and echoes. The best way to do this is by using a headset or earbuds with a mic. Make sure your mic is clear of objects like dangly earrings or long hair (you may need to tie it back). To avoid interruptions, also please remember to silence your phone, and close any apps that could give a sound alert during our time together. Turn off any fans, humming printers, hissing humidifiers … basically, close your eyes, take a listen, and try to minimize any noise in your surroundings.

 

Information about the logistics and flow of the show:

  • When we record, I will welcome you, and we’ll talk a bit about who you are and/or what you are doing before getting into the topic of the show. The tone of the podcast is very conversational and accessible. (There will be a post-recorded intro that I insert later).
  • The show is intended for new and expectant parents, and the questions I ask will reflect this. The tagline of the show is “talking to perinatal pros –and new parents– to inform your intuition.” My goal is that the podcast gives listeners tangible information that they can use while encouraging them to find out more about the topic.
  • Toward the end of the show, I will ask you to share some of your favorite resources on the topic we’ve been discussing, and that you let the listeners know how they can learn more about what you are doing, and the best way to connect with/contact you. Then we’ll say goodbye on the show. Don’t hang up immediately!

 

Before your episode goes live:

The day before your episode goes live, we will send you links so that you can listen and share it with your communities. We will attach an image that we create for Social Media sharing to make the process easier for you.

Thanks again for being a part of the podcast. I’m excited for this!

 

In mightiness,

Adriana
