Podcast guest: in-person | New Westminster

Welcome to the Rhythm Changes Podcast, and thank you for being generous with your time.

🎙️
This guide is for recording episodes in-person, in New Westminster at Will Chernoff's home office. That's me, and my home!

You'll get the address once we confirm booking, if you don't have it yet.

You can park on the street, or take transit to 22nd Street SkyTrain station and then walk or bus in for about 10-15 minutes.

Need-to-knows

  • There's no video
  • It's not live (feel free to rephrase or gather your own thoughts)
  • We'll book 60 minutes of time together on-site, but probably won't need it all
  • New episodes come out on Wednesdays

FAQ

A real human who appeared on the podcast has asked each of these questions. If your question isn't listed here, email me.

Setup

Will we do a pre-interview?

Often, we’ve thought about doing a pre-chat before you see this guide. If that's not the case, you’re welcome to request one. We can do it in 15 minutes online, or hang out in-person.

How long will recording take?

The standard booking is for 60 minutes of your time. Recording will take around 40 minutes of that time, with a goal of 30 minutes for the final episode runtime.

Does the podcast have video?

No, I don't record any video.

Am I 'live' as soon as we sit down in the room?

No—you'll check in and provide consent before any real recording happens. Sometimes I record pre-roll to set volume levels, but I don't use any of the audio before the point when I ask if you're ready.

What if I'm running late?

If you don't arrive within 30 minutes of the start time, the booking is canceled and I might offer to reschedule.

Recording & editing

How do I make my audio sound good?

  • Have the mic positioned at an angle toward you, from the side; I'll set it up for you
  • Keep the mic just above chin level (not riding up toward your nose)
  • Stay relatively close to the mic

Do you have a washroom available?

Yes!

Will I hear my own voice while we record?

No, we don't wear headphones or hear our own voices.

I have accessibility questions

Contact Rhythm Changes with your questions. We'll figure out the best solution to meet your needs.

Content

Is explicit language allowed?

At this time, I edit out all explicit language so that the show can have a 'clean' rating on all platforms. I decided to do this after learning that some episodes in the back catalogue, which still have explicit language in them, don't show up as well in searches and listings.

So, feel free to edit yourself, but it's not totally necessary; I edit you later.

Can I send edit notes, or hear the episode before it comes out?

During the recording, if you want something 'off-the-record' or 'edited out', you can tell me about it. I honour 100% of these requests, always.

However, I don't accept edit notes after the recording has stopped.

I don't provide advance listening for guests.

When do you release new episodes?

Wednesdays 6am local time. Follow the podcast feed in your app of choice, and you'll see your episode as soon as it comes out.
