Changing Awakin Call Format
Jan 4, 2015
Right now, we open the call with 5 minutes (mostly logistics) by host and 20 minute circle with listeners. That is followed by 35 minutes of moderated interview with guest, and then 30 minutes of open-mic Q&A.
What do you people think about 5 minutes welcome by host (and informal couple minute hand-off to moderator), and then going straight into the interview for 45 minutes, and opening up the circle/theme in the later part of the circle?
The original thinking was that opening circle creates more of a community and less of a speaker-listener duality, but in practice, particularly over a telephone line, it's unclear if we succeed in our intention.
Would love to hear your thoughts.
