You Got This...
... but let's prepare anyway.
Storytelling & Education
"If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten."
Listeners will be drawn to your podcast by 1. Hearing stories and 2. Learning something new. If you accomplish one, you're in good shape; if you accomplish both, you're golden. Create an outline of the topics you intend to cover and consider the recording duration you have scheduled. Don't empty your cup... If there is too much to cover in one sitting, save it for the next episode.
Before the Show
"So look it here, check the flavor of the rhythm I wrote, and while I got a chance here, let me clear my throat."
Be sure to have a meal or snack before the show, drink plenty of water, and warm up your voice. You may consider avoiding soda, carbonated water, and alcohol to limit any unintended interruptions. You may also consider a light exercise prior to the show to get your blood flowing and to help clear your mind of any distractions. Bottled water will be provided by the Video Creators Lounge however, if you have a particular beverage of choice, be sure to prepare in advance of the show.
Media, Logos, Set Pieces

If you are recording a video podcast, please provide any images you would like to include. You may also want to bring along any set-pieces or logos you would like to feature in the foreground or background of your podcast. If you would like assistance creating logos for your podcast, let us know, we can help.
Most Importantly: Be prepared to have fun!
