Pre Recording

  1. Contact the Guest. Arrange with the guest a date, time and make sure they are available for a 1-hour podcast with 15 minutes tech check.
  2. Prepare the Designs
  3. Have a to-do list. Here we use Asana to keep a list of tasks we need to do before the event, on the day, during the recording, and after the recording.
  4. Set up the Live.
  5. Schedule Briefing/Debriefing Meeting
  6. Share with the community. Share on social networks, in your newsletter, and send it to your friends.
  7. Prepare the script in advance and brief the guest properly.

On the Day

  1. Always do a Tech Check!
    You never know what problems may arise, even if you’re doing a podcast for a long time, there are always things to take into account. Take the opportunity to review the script, test the internet connection and see if there are any sound or image problems.

After the Recording

  1. Always do a Retro to understand the action items. The idea is to always think about things that went well, to improve, and action items. (Here at productized, we use the app easy retro or Miro Board)
