Collaborate

 

Hello,

Thank you for considering being part of The Share Chair Podcast. We have a simple goal: tell others’ stories. Why? As Atticus Finch said in To Kill a Mockingbird, “You never really understand a person until you walk around in his shoes.” As humans, we are more connected than we realize. We just need to hear other’s stories to realize it.

We’re looking for schools to submit as few or as many episodes as they feel comfortable producing. Maybe you start with a commitment to only produce one a year. Perhaps you have a media class which could do one a month for the entire school year. Every story benefits our mission.

Here’s what we need each episode to make it convenient for us to publish:

Permission

Be sure to have permission for publication found here. Then, scan and email the permission slip to thesharechairpodcast@gmail.com.

Interview

Take 30-40 minutes to capture the interview. Use an iPad with microphones. Use a phone if you have to. Have something more professional? Use it. The goal is this: get the story and make sure we can hear it clearly. That’s all. Focus in on one detail and try to really understand it. Maybe the focus is on being the star volleyball player. Maybe it’s on the impact of a recent parent divorce. All stories are valid and all stories allow us opportunities for empathy. Find the one story and then get deep into it.

Edit

Get the interview down to a 10-12 minute, cleanly edited MP3 file of the discussion. (We CANNOT use copyrighted songs as intro, so feel free to use our own songs or ask a band in your school to create one for you to use. Files found here. Need help? See the video.

Prepare the Publication

We need a picture of that person you are interviewing sent as a JPEG and a 50-100 word description of the interview with the purpose of compelling people to listen

Email Us

Email all of these items (the edited MP3, the JPEG photo, and the interview description) to thesharechairpodcast@gmail.com.

Spread the Word

Once published, we need you to spread the word. Share it from your personal social media account and even to your school’s learning management system so it gets in the hands of every student at your school. Spread the word so others will join.

It might be smart to listen to the last episode or two to get a glimpse of how we do it, but bring your ideas, too. It’s not authentic if it doesn’t have your hand print all over it.

Likely there is more you’d like to know. Just email us: thesharechairpodcast@gmail.com.

Thanks for joining us,

The Share Chair Podcast
