Sober Ventures Summit Interview Guide

Thanks for expressing interest in being a guest for the Sober Ventures Summit!

Options for Recording

I have a few different recording options to accommodate to whatever your preference is for speaking. I can use Zencastr to host an internet browser-based audio-only interview (this is best if you have your own computer audio equipment like microphone/mixer/etc.).

The other option is for me to give you a call on your cell phone or land line. This will result in slightly-poorer audio quality for the interview, but I can do what I can to clean it up in editing to make sure your message comes through well.

Format of Talk

The format of our conversation will be mostly interview-based, with a selection of questions to help guide the discussion. You can feel free to go into as much depth as you’d like and be sure to share anything specific that you’d like to include in your story.
