How We Record Your Interview
We record via Zoom (preferred) or Skype. We use only the audio portion, so no need for hair and makeup!
Most recording sessions are 30-45 minutes in length. Interviews may be edited for clarity and sound quality. Please note: We do not have capacity or staffing for pre-interview phone calls/Zoom sessions with those requesting to be a guest on the show. If you want to get a feel for the show, please listen to previously-broadcast interviews.
All interviews become the property of Mysterious Goings On. We reserve the right to use excerpts of interviews for promotional purposes or as parts of "best of" shows in perpetuity.
WHY GUEST ON OUR SHOW?
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
Before pitching to be a guest, please check out our previous shows to get a feel for what we do and for what we have covered recently: MGOPod.com. We're always looking for interesting authors, people who use creativity in their careers, and folks who are making a difference in their communities.
New writers are featured often--in a supportive and encouraging way. We occasionally delve into the paranormal and the unknown, fun stuff like that. If you have something you think will be unique and unlike recent show topics/guests, please contact us!
