Current times open for interview (taiwan local time):
Thursday: 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Saturday: 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
( Sunday: 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM)
Please let me know if you can’t be available during the time slots listed above so we can discuss another time slot.
Duration of interview will be from 45 mins. to 90 mins. This depends on the time available and allotted by interviewer(s) and interviewee(s) as well as the flow of the interview.
The interview can be done over Skype or FaceTime. If you would like, time can be arranged for you to do the recording in our Taipei studio.
In order to insure that audio is kept clear and intelligible, it is very important that you are away from noisy areas. Move away from windows and machines that may cause noise or pass along vibrations.
Use a good microphone as most computers built-in microphones will be too far from your mouth and pick up large amounts of environmental sounds from outside or fromnearby vibrations. If you don’t have an external microphone, use a low cost wired microphone or headset microphone (ie: iPhone earplug with built-in microphone).
Use earplugs or a headset to insure that sounds coming from your computer aren’t reflected back into your microphone.
The interview is really just you and I having a friendly chat as if we are at a social gathering, in a coffee shop or living room. There is no need to over prepare. We will keep things fun as we both have friends and family who we may want to listen in and understand our lives overseas. And maybe, for once, that certain (family member or friend) back home will look at a map to find out where you live.
Please get back to me as soon as possible to let me know which time slot you can make available for the interview. If you have any time conflicts please let me know.
