The Day Job Production FAQ
How do I schedule an interview for myself or my band?
If you have not discussed this with me please send us an email at:
Once discussed, click the following link and select any time that is available:
What equipment is used in the production process?
I use two Canon EOS Rebel T7i DSLR cameras and a GoPro Hero 7. Soft boxes are placed as needed for lighting.
We will use two or three Audio Technica AT2020 microphones. Recordings are tracked directly into Logic Pro X, later to be edited and mixed there as well.

What Topics are allowed?
We are open to discussing any topic. Religion, politics, science, health...it's all fair game. Not all guests are comfortable with all topics. If you have any topics you want to avoid please notify us in advance.
Is this a live broadcast?
No. The loss in audio and video quality with my current broadcast configuration is noticable. Additionally, I do not have a staff to help produce these episodes. Pre-recorded episodes allow us to maintain a higher quality, edit out any undesirable moments, and allows me to this show with minimal overhead.
WIll I get to see a draft edit of my episode
before it is released?
Ideally, yes. I typicaly edit these episodes within the week of release with intent to provide a draft to the guest. As my workload fluctuates my ability to operate within this timeframe also fluctuates. A milestone for this show would be to contract the video editing work to a vendor. If you know any awesome video editors send them my way!
