My experience of running the ISTC podcast continued in February with an interview with the knowledgeable Chris Knowles of Docmate Services. Chris has extensive experience in the Oil and Gas industry and was recommended as an expert, and he did not disappoint. I had so much great content that I struggled to edit it down to 30 minutes.
The key advice for me was to:
- First, listen to the full recording and make notes of subject areas and times.
- Next, read over your notes and check the flow – natural conversation meanders and you may be able to move sections of speech to organise the flow of information better.
- Then, edit backwards (start near the end of your recording) so you don’t mess up the timings on your notes.
