How to do a WIR Podcast

Overview

Use this workflow when you want to do a Week-in-Review Podcast as a general guide.


Workflow
  1. Determine who will be responsible for each of the following roles. One person can be responsible for them all.
    • Editor:
      • add theme music
      • ensure the audio levels are consistent across recordings
      • coalesce all of the audio files into the final mix using Audacity (or something else)
      • publish the final mix onto Slack and link into the WIR document
    • Narrator(s):
      • analyze the content of the section you'll be narrating: click on each link and understand what is being expressed by the point
      • create a script that describes the content of each point in your section
      • read and record the content of your script
      • export the audio and provide it to the editor before the WIR discussion link is generated
    • Metrics analyst
      • review the current OKRs and formulate an analysis of any trends
      • take screenshots of the key metrics and paste them into the WIR document
      • in text, enter key metrics into the appropriate sections of the WIR document
      • write a script summarizing your findings
      • read and record the content of your script
      • export the audio and provide it to the editor before the WIR discussion link is generated
  2. Execute the above before the discussion thread hits Slack.
