Be a Podcast Guest

If you are interested in being a podcast guest consider:

  • What you are happy to share

  • If there is a particular topic you would like to discuss

  • If you are happy to provide a profile photo for episode promotion

  • If you have social media or website accounts you would like to mention/ have signposted

The technology required:

  • Skype account - can be a free account

  • A microphone - the one on your headphones or phone is fine. A laptop microphone can be used, but its not the best

  • Make sure you have a good internet connection

  • I use a Skype recording app that will automatically start recording when the call reaches 5 minutes

Discussion structure:

  • I do not have 'set questions'

  • Usual conversation topics can include - who you are, your story, experience/ thoughts regarding mental health/ wellbeing, current projects, future projects

  • It's not an interview, it's a discussion. So we may end up talking about random points/ thoughts.

  • If I introduce a symptom or illness, I’ll always try and do it as a talking point or from my experience. I will not say ‘I know you have experienced...’ I’m happy to hear anything you have to say, but I’ll let you decide what and how much you’re happy to share.

Discussions/ recording usually take place on Tuesday evenings at 6pm or 7.30pm. Occasional Sunday afternoon/ evenings are available. This slot is often used for guests from North America.

Recordings last 30-60 minutes. Please allow 60 minutes in case we use the full time. 

If you have any questions, would like to discuss further, or would like to be a guest you can email me here
