Frequently Asked Questions

Thank you so much for agreeing to be a guest on The Willow Bent. I absolutely cannot wait to speak with you. But first, here’s everything you need to know to make sure our conversation can happen without any mishaps – technological or otherwise.

The Willow Bent is a podcast exploring the idea that resilient design thinking will save us all. As communities continue to be more vulnerable, The Willow Bent will explore what the built world is doing to create resiliency within their designs. Our goal is to bring these ideas to the forefront and create open a dialog so communities can withstand the many hardships they will continue to face.

Interview

We will record our interview on Zoom. It will take about 45-60 minutes of your time, depending on how in-depth we get with our conversation. We'll talk for a few minutes before we start the recording so that we can get to know each other a little bit and check the sound. I'll also answer any questions you might have, and I'll have you pronounce your name for me. After that, we'll begin the recording.
