As you've probably noticed, we have guests in the studio a few weeks before you get the show. If you're the curious type, you may be wondering why.
1. I, David, talk with the guests a few days before we record to go over their bios and potential show topics. I then use this information to prepare an outline of the show.
2. Guests come in to the studio a little before "show time" for us to finalize everything, make sure the intros are correct, meet the producer, meet the engineer, meet the editor, meet the coordinator, and go over exactly what is going to happen when we start rolling tape.
3. We roll tape and end up with something like this. This was a show with four guests at once and you can hear Gary (producer) in the background helping things along.
4. The show goes to Justin (editor) who has the huge job of making everything sound really good. :)
And that is why things take a few weeks.
