Preparing for your interview:

Our interviews are recorded via Zencastr or Skype (mainly Zencastr). Our host will send you a link to the recording session on Zencastr prior to the interview. If you didn’t get the link, you can simply go to www.zencastr.com/ukramedia/firstnamelastname.

You are expected to be logged into Zencastr at the scheduled time of your interview, If your interview is via Skype, then you will be contacted via Skype by Vladimir at the time of your interview. We will be recording audio only.

Please ensure that you have a reliable internet connection during your interview. Using a laptop computer’s built-in microphone will result in poor audio quality. An external microphone is recommended but not required.

A typical interview is 30 minutes in length, although you should allocate 50 minutes to allow for sound check and brief discussion before and after the interview. To help minimize background noises or possible interruptions (technological or otherwise), please ensure that you are in a private/enclosed area at the time of the interview. The interview will be professionally edited before it is published to help minimize background noises, volume fluctuations, and in some cases, verbal slip-ups.

We encourage you to share the link to your interview via social media and other means to help increase its exposure.

Thanks again for your interest in being a guest on our podcast. We look forward to hearing your insights and sharing your story with our audience!
