I'd Like to Participate!


You may submit content independently or find a friend or colleague who knows you well to interview you. 

You may review our list of suggested questions with your interviewer and develop a general idea of the stories that you would like to share, and how your interviewer can help you tell them. Your conversation may be as short as 10 minutes, or as long as 45 minutes. 

Record your story. This may be done in a variety of ways:

  1. Do it yourself. Send us a high quality WAV, AIFF, MP3 or MP4 file. See our Recording Guidelines for more details. We cannot guarantee that the recording will be featured in the podcast and The Forum reserves the right to edit. 
  2. Make an appointment to record your interview in person at The Forum Annual Conference.

Contact Elizabeth Frohlich, Director for Programs and Resources, at to submit a file or schedule an in-person interview at the conference.
