I love it when a plan comes together

I Lounged with LannaLee ChachkisTonight I recorded my second Lounging with LannaLee episode. Yesterday I recorded the first. When asking people to lounge with me I let them know that it will take an hour from start to finish to record the podcast. A few minutes to get ready, 30 minutes for the show, and a few minutes wrap up. And both times it came in under an hour.

Granted, a bit of prep work went into that. I wrote up some show notes with ideas of what I wanted to talk about. I cobbled together guest bios from online profiles. I knew specifically how I wanted the show to start and end. As part of the getting ready before we recorded, I let my guests (@AlexSteed and @BlackGirlinMain) know what to expect and allowed them to hear how I would introduce them.

My choice of equipment helps too, the recording device I use (the Zoom H2 Handy Portable Stereo Recorder) takes a minute to set up, once I turn it on, it’s ready to go. If I’m at someone else’s house, the device also takes just a moment to put away.

All in all, I am very pleased about how this is going. I’m going to a conference this weekend, and I hope to connect with more people to guest on my show. I’ll be bringing my equipment and it’s good that I can assure potential guests that I would only need an hour.

Like I said: I love it when a plan comes together!
