With all the Ukraine stuff going on, I've been approached recently for a few interviews. One on GB News, one on another channel and one on a blokes Youtube channel (a bloke who is a frequent panel guest on GB News)
I'm no stranger to interviews, I've done some on TV due to specific business expertise (they bring a crew so nothing tech for me to think about)
, and loads on radio
when we did our book some years back. But that was all on the phone.
Nowadays its video over the internet via Skype or whatever. And on that 'whatever', is there one better than Skype on desktop?
So that brings me to the microphone and speakers thing. I don't want biofeedback, so I can't have the presenters voice coming out of my speakers? I don't really want to wear headphones for a video interview. Some do, but I think it looks naff. I can use my daughter's Airpods, but that means using my iPad, and that means wifi (unless I can connect them via my non-Apple desktop?), so the signal will be degraded. Too many people go garbled or freeze in interviews due to a bad wifi/bluetooth connections.
So what do I use to avoid biofeedback, so I can not wear headphones, and so I can use my desktop and an ethernet connection to avoid signal drop?
