[Partner Support] Answering Your Audience’s Questions

Let’s Get Started

Ok, so you’ve got the spreadsheet in front of you. You’ve likely landed on this page by clicking the link at the top of the spreadsheet. This article will help get you on the right track to answering your audience’s questions. 

You’ll have noticed the spreadsheet has a few headings.

  • Date
  • Episode
  • Submitted By
  • Question
  • Notes

Let’s go over them briefly, so you’ll know exactly what you’re doing. If this is your first time reading this the very first question or episode you’ll see is episode 0. At the end of this article there will be an example script to help guide you.

The Intro Episode

This episode is the introduction episode, this episode will give you the opportunity to connect with people that don’t know you already from your stream as well as giving you the chance to set the expectations for the new podcast.

In the question section for this episode there will be a link to an existing intro episode from one of our other hosts. Have a listen to that to get an idea of the format, but bring your own spin and personality to the episode. Also, in the notes section for this episode there will be some other hints as to what to include.

Date

We try to plan everything ahead of time. So all the episodes have already been scheduled in for release, all we need is your answer, so we can create and edit the episode and write the show notes.

Episode

This is exactly what it says, what episode number we’re up to. This is important to know, for example. At the beginning of every episode you’ll say something like this:

“Hey guys, welcome to episode “number” of Ask (Insert Name Here) Podcast. Today’s question is from (OMG what goes here? – you’ll find out in the next section.)

Submitted By

This section will have the person that asked the question. Let’s continue off from where we were in out script:

“Hey guys, welcome to episode “number” Ask (Insert Name Here) Podcast. Today’s question is from “Submitted By”.

The show will then cut to intro music.

If the question was submitted as audio the name will be linked to the Audio. If not, you’ll need to record the question.

Let’s move on to the question.

Question

Ok this is the question. As mentioned if there is no audio version of the question you’ll have to record it separately.

If it’s an audio submission, we’ll tidy it up and drop it into the show after your intro.

As an example: “Submitted By” asks, “Question”.

“Jentaru asks Do you have any experience with tabletop RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons? If so what is one of your favorite stories from the sessions?”

So you’ll record:

“Hey guys, welcome to episode 5 of the Ask “DYoshii” Podcast. Today’s question is from Jentaru.”

Note: You can keep recording here, or split the recordings up, whatever you like.

“Jentaru asks Do you have any experience with tabletop RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons? If so what is one of your favorite stories from the sessions?”

Notes

This section will just have any other information or commentary from the Pro Gamer Network that may (or may not) help you answer the question or pertinent information.  

Ok, hope that helped you out, good luck recording your answers.
