Info for guests

Going to be a guest on the Bootstrapped podcast? Here’s what you need to know:

  • We’ll use SquadCast to conduct the interview. SquadCast is kind of like Zoom, but it runs in your browser and is optimised for good podcast audio.
  • I’ll send you a SquadCast invite link shortly before the interview.
  • If possible, find a quiet space away from background noise.
  • Use headphones.
  • If you have an external microphone or headset, please use it. But if not, your computer’s built-in microphone will be okay.
  • Before our call, make sure you’ve muted or turned off Skype, Slack, your phone, and anything else that makes noisy notifications.

The format of our SquadCast call:

  • Expect our call to last about 45 minutes.
  • We’ll chat for a few minutes first without recording. This is a chance to check everything is working.
  • Once we start recording, we’ll aim for roughly 35 minutes of recording.
  • All episodes get edited to remove mistakes and things you wish unsaid.
  • The published version is typically about 30 minutes long.
