How will we Connect for Recording?

We use Zoom to record our podcast with guests. Once we schedule and confirm our recording day/time, you’ll receive a calendar invite with the zoom link. On the day and time of our interview, access this link to launch the zoom app. If possible, find a quiet room where you won’t be disturbed. We’ll require approximately 45 mins to 1 hour to conduct the interview. Please reserve 1 hour of time.

What are the Hardware/Software Requirements for Recording?

First, you’ll need the zoom app installed on your computer and a high speed internet connection. For the recording location, please find a quiet room where you won’t be disturbed. For audio equipment, there are some options depending on what you might have available to you.

  1. If you have them, the best quality audio is usually achieved with an external microphone and headphones. This can be a stand alone USB mic attached to your computer and separate headphones. See an example this here.
  2. Another option is an all-in-one wired USB headset or earbuds that use a built-in microphone. This could be like a gamer-style headset or classic wired apple earbuds. In this case, wired headphones are preferred over bluetooth or wireless options. See an example of this here or here.
  3. If you don’t have access to any external mic or headphones, not to worry! We’ll work with you to make your audio sound as good as possible.
Who is Sake Revolution’s Audience?

We strive to be a listener-focused podcast. As such, it’s important to know that our target audience is anyone interested in learning more about sake. We hope to attract listeners of all knowledge levels and strive to be especially welcoming and easy-to-understand for those just getting started with sake. Our goal is to provide fun, upbeat and accessible learning, exploration and discussions about sake.

What is the Recording Format?

We usually ask our guests to reserve one hour for the recording session. The first half of our time together is usually spent with our questions about your connection to sake or your background in sake or details about the sake project you’re working on. In the second half of our time, we like to taste a sake together with our guest, to discuss the flavor and impression. The edited episode will usually end up around 30 mins in length.

What Sake will we Taste Together?

We taste a sake together with all our guests as part of our show. Before recording, we’ll discuss with you which sake you’d like to taste together. This can be a sake from your offering/portfolio that you wish to highlight, or simply a sake that is your favorite or that has special meaning for you. We like to ensure that sakes we feature for tasting are available for most U.S. consumers and has distribution in the United States. We need to be able to source this sake for ourselves in NYC or from a retailer that ships to NYC. Please contact us with any questions about this sake selection.

Anything that Guests Need to Provide?

For our show notes and to promote the episode, we ask our guests to provide us with a high resolution “headshot” photo of yourself. We’ll list your website and social media in our show notes as well. If you have any press release for your sake project, event or company, please send it to us so we can include it in our show notes. If there is anything else you want us include, just let us know.

What Happens after the Recording?

After we record, your episode will usually air anywhere from 1-3 weeks later. We’ll be sure to send you a link when the episode goes live. Please let us know which of your social media you would like us to tag when we promote your episode. We’ll post to our Instagram and Twitter channels as well as posting the episode, show notes and transcript to our homepage:
