Guest Audio & Video Checklist

6 Important Steps | Video Podcast Guests



1. *You will need a USB microphone for audio.

2. *You will need an HD Camera on your computer or laptop.

*Please use a high quality HD or 4K camera for the interview.

3. *You will need quality lighting to make sure you look your best on video.

4. *You will need a STRONG WiFi connection. *Ethernet is preferred for the Skype interview.  

  • Please close all apps and connections to WiFi during the interview.
  • A strong internet connection via Ethernet cable is recommended if possible, and will ensure a clean, clear, and intimate audio episode free of gaps and cut-outs.

4. You will need a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted.  

  • Background noise from planes, humming refrigerators, air conditioners, and attention-hungry children (or employees) are all the enemy of good audio.
  • Avoid rooms that are echo-y or have lots of hard, flat surfaces to ensure good audio.
  • The optimal environment would be a small room with carpets, heavy curtains, and other soft surfaces that deaden reflected sound.

5. You will need to use ear earphones (or your Logitech headset) during your interview.

  • That way Josh’s voice will go straight into your ears and won’t be picked up by your microphone, avoiding a “feedback loop.”

6. *You get to look your BEST!

  • This is a video podcast and we want our audience to see you in your best light.
  • This includes whatever clothing, lighting, and background items best represent your brand and voice. **Please be mindful of this for the video.**



*Apple and Spotify report over 75% of listeners will opt-out of all future episodes that contain poor audio and video quality.
