Welcome to Immigrant Muse Podcast, where we muse about everything that impacts the lives of immigrants from the perspective of immigrants. Thank you for accepting our invitation to be a guest on the show. We value your time and provide the information below to help you prepare adequately and ensure you have a seamless experience. You can listen to previous episodes on:

Recording Platform:

We’ll record the show using Riverside FM, which allows both video and audio recording. Please plan to log on at least 5 minutes before the scheduled recording time to allow for any setup or technical issues.

Equipment & Technology:

We recommend you use wired headphones during the recording to reduce latency (the time it takes for your audio signal to be sent to your computer). Please make sure to reduce background noise and echo. And record in a quiet room with limited visual distractions.


Good lighting is important to ensure high-quality video recording. Your recording room should be well-lit with natural light or a lamp that can be adjusted to your liking. Avoid backlighting and try to sit facing a window, if possible.

Dress Code:

Dress comfortably.

Format (30-40 minutes total):

  1. Warm-up (2-3 minutes): Review the run of the show before going live.
  2. Introduction (2-5 minutes): I’ll start off with an introduction of myself, the show, the episode topic and the guest. Prior to the recording, I’ll get information about you to help with the introduction.
  3. Discussion (15 – 25 minutes): I’ll guide the discussion based on your answers, asking questions relevant to the topic and follow-up questions. I’ll provide some guideline questions for your preparation.
