3 Tips to Get Your Audio on the Podcast
- Limit your call length to 60 seconds. Most calls are too long for the show. Practice what you're going to say so you can say it clearly. There will be some exceptions to call length as I'll let some 2 minute calls on the show if they are really well thought out, but we have tens of thousands of listeners, so we need to make sure every second of the show is worth listening to.
- Start your call with “This is (your name) from (your city, state, or country).” Listeners of the show like hearing where everyone is from.
- Be sure your audio quality is good. If you're recording from a cell phone, speak clearly into the phone in a place where there isn't a lot of background noise.
One last thing, we can't promise to reply to your email OR that your audio will be on the show. There are just too many of you and only one of me. But we'll do our very best. Once you send in your question, rest assured we received it and we'll be including it in a future episode.
