Guidelines for CLE Podcast Guests
The following is the standard list of required information and rules that ALL
guests on the Creation Liberty Podcast must agree to via private email to me before they are allowed to come on our show.
All guests must send me an email with these points of information:
Our guest will need to connect with me on Skype for a few minutes sometime before their appearance is scheduled to work out the details of our live discussion. This will also determine if our guest still wants to be on the show after speaking with me, and if his/her sound equipment works properly for the show recording.
- First Name
[(Example: Bob -- I don't have conversations with anonymous cowards)]
[(Example: 20 -- I'm not bringing 12 year olds on my show.)]
- Geographical Location
[(Example: Indiana -- Something to make your first name significant)]
- Your Skype username.
[(You must have Skype installed [www.skype.com] and a working PC mic.)]
- Times you are available to talk privately on Skype.
- Potential topics you want to discuss.
All guests are required to agree to the following guidelines:
A. This is a family-orientated show. I request to keep cursing to a minimum. I can understand an occasionally slip, but I have a low tolerance for it on a live show, and will typically warn our guests about it if it's getting out of hand. Constant and/or deliberate swearing will lead to immediate disconnection of our phone call.
B. Aggressive or belligerent behavior will not be tolerated. Frustration is understandable, but I request all guests to do their best to be mature and reasonable.
C. No uninvited people are allowed on the Skype call. This applies both to the private call before-hand, and during the show. Extra uninvited people connected to our Skype conversation will result in immediate termination of the call.
D. Both sides need to be fair in the amount of time they are allowed to speak. I don't hold real tight to this, but we have had some guests attempt to dominate the air time by interupting and not allowing a response to their questions/claims. Constant attempts to dominate air time will result in termination of the call.
E. I make ample effort to keep the conversation to the agreed topic. These discussions can move into almost infinite areas, so to stay on topic allows us to follow the logic of the subject as efficiently as possible. (Topic will be chosen during private conversation on Skype, and announced at the beginning of the show.)
F. If our guest has been found to have given false information (e.g. age, location, etc), his/her spot on the show will be cancelled. (If that information is discovered live on the show, the call will be immediately disconnected.)
G. Our guest may NOT call from a public or office setting with wifi. This has caused numerous interruption problems in the past. Guests MUST call from an in-home internet connection, or call will be immediately terminated.
H. A guest's participation in, and appearance on, our live show is considered an automatic agreement to these guidelines.
