COVID-19 UPDATE - ONLINE INTERVIEWS NOW AVAILABLE
Share your heritage, no matter where you are
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Shareitage is now conducting personal podcast interviews online.
We have received a large number of requests for this from our community who are anxious to capture their loved ones stories as soon as possible.
Shareitage was founded on values of community and connection so we don’t want any family to miss out on capturing their heritage for future generations, whether they’re in regional or metro Australia, overseas or nearby but self-isolating or in quarantine.
As such, we have dramatically reduced the price of our 3-part podcast from $990 to $495, including GST for projects with online interviews which are booked by June 30, 2020.
For the foreseeable future, instead of our journalists coming to your loved ones’ home, we will use an online platform to record the Shareitage interview of their life story. Our post-production team will then turn this into a beautiful 3-part personal podcast to share with friends and family.
Our interviews will still be conducted by professional journalists however we will the Zoom virtual meeting platform, which is free to use and simply requires you to have headphones with a microphone (for example, Apple iPhone headphones with a built-in mic).
Our audio engineers have advised that the audio quality achieved using this method is sufficient to enable us to support our community’s requests at the time

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How can we share our heritage?
Our friendly team will talk to you first to identify the themes you’d like our journalist to cover. Our journalist will then record an interview the subject before our post-production team edit the interview into a short series of 15-23 minute podcast episodes just for you and your loved ones to share.
Are our stories worth telling?
Just as everyone has a story to tell, everyone also has stories that they NEED to hear. Your loved one's Shareitage podcast might cover their family history, their insights about how life has changed and their hopes for the future. As they say, 'The years teach us much which the days never knew.'
How will I explain to Nana what a podcast is?
If references to Serial, Teacher's Pet or Chat 10, Looks 3 draw a blank, try this: "A podcast is like a long radio program, only instead of sitting around the wireless to listen, people can listen on their phones or computers." Need an example? Send us an email and we’ll send you a sample.
Why are episodes only 15-23 minutes long?
Shareitage personal podcasts means your family's special stories live on for generations to come. We know 15-23 minutes is the “sweet spot” for episode length - long enough to get into the story, but short enough listen to while commuting or exercising. Having 3- or 5-part series means your audience can enjoy each episode uninterrupted, and easily pick up again later.
But my Dad/Mum/Nana isn’t much of a talker....
Good talkers just need good askers. We only use professional journalists who are trained in interviewing techniques and story research. We know that everybody has a story.
Can anyone hear my finished Shareitage podcast?
No - your Shareitage personal podcast is for you and your family members for private use. However, you can nominate it to be considered for the free "Best of Shareitage" podcast, just let our team know.
What if I make a mistake during the interview?
We work with you before & during the interview to help you, or your loved one sound their absolute best.
Can we pay as a syndicate?
Yes - we have billing options so that siblings & extended families can contribute to a combined gift. Call us now on 08 6444 1707 to discuss.
