Know Your Equipment

If you look at other people in entertainment:
Musicians
Actors
Athletes

They all have some sort of “pre-seasons, or “Dress Rehearsal” to work out the kinks and your podcast should follow their example.

I am going to Podcast Movement next week and I have the following gear ready to use/test:

Tascam DR-10X miniature recorder
SC6-L Mobile Interview Kit
Rode Interviewer Microphone

I haven't used any of this equipment and I will have TONS of opportunities to use it at Podcast movement.

I DONT WANT MY FIRST “REAL” INTERVIEW TO BE MY GUINEA PIG

Don't use a real guest as a guinea pig

You Will Thank Me Later

If your parents (or anyone who made an impact on your life) are still around, use them as your “test” interview. There are some fun twists with this:
1) As you are “in control” as the interviewer you may feel more comfortable asking questions you normally wouldn't.

2) They may really expand on stories as this is being recorded and they want to give you good content (they are your parents still)

3). If life goes according to plan, you will outlive them (I hate to bum you out) but you will thank me later
