Interviewing for podcasts
You are behind the mic, ready to record your first podcast ... but wait! What do you ask? This hands-on training session helps you navigate the world of podcast interviews.
The session will cover preparing for interviews, creating a question line, finding your authentic voice and active listening.
Participants will be paired up and asked to conduct short interviews with a fellow participant which will be recorded over Zoom. As a group we’ll listen back to them and workshop the interviews for constructive feedback.

By the end of this session you will have:
 Increased your awareness of strategies for effectively planning an interview.
