I record podcast interviews remotely with Zoom and use the BigStage Teleprompter with the questions that I'll ask (that are only visible on my computer). The audio file from the Zoom recording is used to created the podcast. Two recent podcasts:

Organizing to Win

Mira Weinstein at Organizing to Win discuss the challenging topic of power. They agree that strategic campaigns must go beyond winning to develop the power that can bring about real change. 
- The relational dynamic of power
- What motivates organizers and activists to gain power
