FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • RSnake has compiled a list of interesting people who work on complex, interesting or socially compelling topics. Ideally, he is interested in people who are passionate about a problem that effects everyone and ideally the guest has unique ways of looking at the problem at hand. So few people in the world are truly passionate about what they work on. RSnake finds these people and often does an initial interview with them to make sure they have enough interesting things to discuss. If that conversation goes well and it is clear they have a lot more to dig into, RSnake goes forward with an invite to speak on The RSnake Show. The more compelling the voice, the more likely it will make for good conversation. RSnake doesn't have to agree with their point of view, but he needs to make sure the conversations are interesting for the audience. RSnake does choose some guests upon referral by other guests as well based on their subject matter expertise.

  • Yes and no. The intro is definitely heavily edited to make sure it flows well and the shots are aligned and the intro is typically shot in MOS to accommodate. Occasionally guests will need restroom breaks or have coughing fits that are edited out. In some rare examples, a guest may say something they didn't mean to say and the guest asks us to edit the content, or Chris (our producer) prefers that some content be removed due to it not flowing well with the rest of the interview. We prefer not to edit anything if at all possible, but from time we deem it necessary. There has been a few occasions where the guests simply don't know the answer to a question and they ask us to cut out their lack-of-reply, long pauses or filler sounds ("uhhhh" and "ahhhh") as they consider possible answers. While our questions are not meant to be trivial it is also not our intention to do "gotcha" interviews, so if the conversation ends up being too one-sided we do allow the guest to chop content if they deem it necessary to do so, though ultimately RSnake maintains editorial control. Due to having multiple cameras, we can get away with some cuts without it being particularly obvious to the audience, but it is not our intention to edit anything that RSnake or the guest says so that we can maintain the integrity of the conversation for the audience's sake.

  • If it were impossible to get an in-person guest for whatever reason, a remote session might be on the table, but RSnake finds that conversations flow better when people are in person. A large percentage of people's communication is nonverbal, and it comes across much more clearly when the interviewer can make eye contact with the guest. Further, there is something very different about being in a professional studio, where the sound can be mixed more clearly, leading to better audio quality. Also, it leads to a much more intimate and focused conversation aiding in active listening and more positive discourse. RSnake prefers to do the show in a studio where more variables can be controlled but occasionally will take the show to other locations.

    • If you pay attention to some of the episodes (E.g. Season 1 Episode 3 with Dr. Sheila Newsome), it can take over an hour just to get the back story of the conversation so that the deeper conversation can follow. In many cases, it can take the guest an hour or more just to loosen up to the point where RSnake can get the guest talking openly. Many people are camera shy and it takes time for them to relax. Additionally due to the the depth of the conversations on the show, it often requires the audience to learn more about the technology first or get some background information, so they can follow along with the real meat of the conversation. Lastly, sometimes the conversations are just so complex that there is no quick way to discuss them without missing vitally important nuance.

    • Any given episode is shot typically in the late afternoon or evening, and therefore edits, voiceovers, and cutting together the MOS video for the introduction typically starts the following day. This gives us a day or so to start building out media clips used for social media, and promotional content. We try, during the season, to do one episode per week, but that is very dependent upon scheduling issues. Previously the show would drop new episodes as soon as they were available which lead to unknown timing. Going forward the intention is to launch new videos on Thursdays, however that may change as situations prohibit that schedule, or where something is extremely time sensitive.
