- Be sure to write up the topic ahead of time on a studio doc and share it with the studio guests. Feel free to write extra notes on the doc if it helps.
- Start with the opener: “Today’s topic is for… (who it’s for + a short hook to say why it’s important or what it’s about).” Keep you hook under 30 seconds.
- Then the introduction: “I’m here with… (guest names).” Be ready with a great icebreaker question to engage your guests.
- It’s your job to make your guests comfortable and create simple transitions between talking points. Practice this until you get good at it.
- If you need to redo a segment or take a break between segments, remember to make it easy for our video editors. If the camera was last on your guest, you need to start the new segment (or vice-versa).
- Try to keep the interview between 5 and 8 minutes long. End the topic with something like, “That’s all for this topic. Now use the discussion questions below to talk about it with a group or mentor.”
