Frequently Asked Questions


Is Conundrums broadcast live?

No, we record the show on Wednesday evening, edit it and upload it for viewing by the weekend on our channel. We call our guest on Skype at a pre-determined time and conduct the show. The program is taped and edited later. If necessary to accommodate our guest we may record on a different evening. Recording time is usually 7pm Central unless other arrangements are made.

Can I have a friend with me on the show?

Sure, you can have them sit next to you so both of you are on camera. We prefer that you do not have anyone off camera with you unless necessary as they may be a distraction.

Can I show a web site or photo during the show?

Yes you can. You can hold up a photo, book, DVD or any item on camera to show the audience. If we reference a web site or digital photo during the show those visual items will need to be emailed to us so we may include them during the editing phase of the show. We insert them into the program so the audience gets a good long look. This is done post-recording and is nothing technical you need worry about. We simply need the digital image or web site URL.

Can I show a video during the program?

Yes you can. If it is on the web simply provide us the URL and we will record it from our studio to show on the program. If it is a file we will need the file to insert into the program later when editing. In most cases we will simply play the video while the show is recording and replace your Skype image with the video in real time. This is done on our end so you need not worry about any technical details. We will need to know before the show that you want to display a video and where it can be found on the web.

Is there a fee to be on your show?

No, we do not charge our guests, nor do we pay for interviews. We do retain all rights to the show and it's contents as well as the right to use your image to promote the show and display the interview.

Is there a waiting list to be on the show?

Yes, once you contact us we begin the process of having you as our guest. We determine if you need anything to make the show possible, such as a web camera or microphone. If you already have and use a web camera we may conduct a test to see its performance. This is simply a call on Skype. We will conduct a conversation on Skype to get an idea of what the show will be about and your goals as our guest. Then we place you on our schedule and contact you before the interview.
If you already have a web camera and Skype you may be placed closer to the top of our guest list.

• Avoid t-shirts or dark clothing. For men you may prefer a sport or button up shirt, For women you may prefer something casual but "dressy"
• Avoid stripes. Clothing with stripes or check patterns may look busy on camera, solid colors are best.
• Hair, makeup and such should be done prior to your appearance, men should be well groomed. A good rule of thumb would be to dress as if you were going out on the town.
