If you haven't listened to No Driving Gloves before, we a conversational podcast. Our goal is to be like 3 or 4 guys sitting around talking cars, Letting the listener in on the conversation. The interview style is very informal with very few scripted questions. We are always looking beyond what has been said to find out what hasn't. We do try to keep a "clean" rating so we ask that you try and watch your language. Any inappropriate language or innuendos may be altered to fit a "clean" rating for publication in Apple Podcasts and certain foreign markets.
Next, we ask you to use a very good quality, corded, USB headset, or a Dynamic Cardioid Microphone. The microphone built into your laptop or desktop does not provide good audio quality. Any production that has subpar audio may not be published or may have limited release. This decision lies solely with the show producer.
Make sure you have a QUIET spot. Be aware of background noises such as fans, heaters, air-conditioners, generators, etc. We will be recording in the evening in an attempt to cut down on noise and interruptions. Any audio distractions may cause a portion of the show to edited to eliminate any noises. Repeated noise, such as clicking or background talk may cause the production not to be released.
You should also be aware of what your hands are doing. Try to sit with your fingers laced together so you can twiddle your thumbs – you would be surprised how easily clicking pens and other doo-dongs get picked up by the mic!
