Five tips for on-location podcast recording, via Mark Moran, news director for NPR’s public radio affiliate in Phoenix:

  1. In every environment where you do an interview, just switch on your recorder and get 15-30 seconds of ambient sound at that location.
  2. Ask for your subject’s name and title at the top of the interview.
  3. Include your voice only if you’re asking a question or making an important clarification.
  4. Think with your ears.
  5. Avoid yes/no questions. It’s helpful to direct your interview subject to answer questions in sentence format and in a declarative way.
