Planning an Episode

There are many questions to ask yourself before you start recording. What kind of show will you be making? What kind of equipment will you need? How comfortable is the person giving the lecture or being interviewed with technology? Will you need notes or a script? How is a podcast different than other presentations? What questions should I ask during an interview? What should I do if we make mistakes during recording? How can I learn to edit? Can I add music to my podcast? How long should my podcast be?

Use the checklist below to help you answer these questions.
