Equipment Requirements:

Guests must have a high-quality, computer-connectable microphone, such as the Blue Yeti, and a pair of headphones.
Please note:
  • Bluetooth headphones, such as AirPods, and internal computer microphones do not create high-quality sound. However, wired headphones suffice if the guest does not have access to another microphone.
  • If the guest needs to use a phone or other mobile device to record, please give Whitney a heads up as she’ll need to send specific instructions for this.
  • There will be a video and audio recording.
