The complete how to on plosive removing!

May 4, 2017
  • You and I both know, being interviewed via media is one of the absolute best ways to grow your influence. But when it comes time to be interviewed on a podcast, what should you do, and what should you not do? As a podcast production company, we hear thousands of interviews. If you guessed we have heard some massive interview fails - and wins - you'd be right. Here is what we've learned. Use it and conquer.

    1. Smile.

    You'd be amazed at the hum drum interviews. Have we all forgotten that monotone science teacher we once had? Have some enthusiasm, have some zeal. Be excited, after all, you (should be) talking about an area of expertise and passion. Besides, you feeling like you're hyped up to eleven is likely to sound like a normal five on the energy scale to most listeners.

    2. Think about someone else

    No, this isn't a word domination breakthrough, it's the golden rule, 101. The thing is, people being interviewed often think it's about them. Nothing could be further from the truth. It's about the host, it's about the show's audience. So think about that. What does the host need from you? How can you help the audience? If this interview never happened, would the world be missing something?

    A small trick with this is to say the host's name, and when appropriate mention that you're considering the audience in your answer. Phrases like "That's a great question Pat" or "I understand the audience of this show is well educated, and so we can..." Simple mentions of someone else, and if you authentically care, you'll authentically help someone.

    3. Get your tech gear right

    If it's a remote interview, do the world a solid favor. Get some headphones. Don't listen to the host via the laptop speakers. It causes echo and is unprofessional. Use some standard headphones, anything works, but the more isolated they are the better. Test them out first. On some equipment headphones with a microphone have issues.

    Which brings us to the next point, get a mic, any mic, but please don't use your laptop mic. Just about any dynamic mic will work. The AT2100 is a great one if you're just starting out. If you're unsure, have a peek at our equipment recommendations. Not only does this increase intelligibility, but it's a relief for the host, and actually makes you sound smarter!

    4. Employ the three second rule

    Have you ever been in a conversation with more than one child at once? Did they wait for the first to stop talking before interjecting their opinion? Probably not. It was more likely a cacophony of voices. We've solved this at our house with the three second rule. It's simple, wait three seconds after the current speaker talks. It avoids interruption, and gives you time for a thoughtful response. It causes us to listen first, consider and then respond. It also goes a long way toward avoiding being rude to your host, and being perceived as such by the audience.

    5. Give succinct, clear answers

    Know what you want to say, and say it. Avoid long winded, winding answers.

    6. Give stories

    Put emotion in your points, the stories are what people will remember afterwards anyway. Emphasis your points with story.

    7. Do all you can to not interview...

    • On a cell phone
    • With the windows open to noise
    • When airplanes fly over
    • At the beach
    • On a walk
    • With a ringing or vibrating cell phone
    • While typing
    • While cooking lunch
    • Next to loud, busy roads
    • Next to jackhammer construction

    I don't mention these because I made them up, I say them because they actually come through our studio - often.

    8. Interview when your mid is sharp

    Don't schedule interviews when you're burned out and exhausted. Know when you're at your best, and schedule then.

    9. Listen in afterwards.

    Hone your skills by listening to your interview. I know it's painful, we all dislike it, but don't let that phase you. You'll get better at this the more you interview AND review your performance after.

    This is not exhaustive, but it's a great start. Please let us help you with your interviews! You can contact us here, we'd be honored to empower your voice.
