Dear APH-y: Analytics Advice (Possibly Explicit)

For an upcoming episode, we will be taking listener questions! It’s what all the cool podcasts do periodically, and we’re nothing if not a podcast that attempts to imitate the cool kids.

The kicker: the quality of the episode is going to be heavily reliant on the quality of the submitted questions! You’re reading this page, so you’ve already taken the first step in helping us out with that!

The legal stuff: By submitting a question, you are agreeing to have the audio file you submit included in a future episode of the show. Any constraints that you include in the email when you submit the question will be respected.

The 3 Steps to Question Submission

We’ve made this as easy as possible given that we have a tiny budget, no in-house UX expertise, and limited technical chops.

Step 1: Come up with a question

This is really on you. But, some prompts:

    • Has there been an episode where you thought the discussion was working its way towards something you really wanted to hear addressed…and then the discussion took a turn and never got there?
    • Is there something you’ve been grappling with at work, and, as far as you can tell, we’ve never touched on it at all (or, at least, not on an episode that you’ve listened to)?
    • Is there something you’ve always wondered about when it comes to the logistics of the show itself?
    • Have you violently disagreed with something one or more of the co-hosts has said on a past show? Ask us about it!

Step 2: Record a voice memo

We don’t need crazy high quality audio—your phone or your laptop’s microphone is sufficient. Preferably, you will record in a spot that doesn’t have a bunch of background noise, so we suggest avoiding airport tarmacs, concert venues, movie theaters, political rallies, and daycare centers.

The one required piece of content to include is the question itself! (This seems obvious, but we know how analysts can be when it comes to details.)

We would like for you to also include your name and where you are based, but that’s not absolutely required.

One caveat: If you’re thinking something along the lines of,”My question is about a work situation, and I’d only be comfortable asking it if I can ask it anonymously,” we can accommodate you! Just include what you’re comfortable with on that front in your email when you send in the question. We’re happy to:

    • Leave off your name and/or your location: just don’t include either or both when you record the question, and we won’t mention any additional details, either.
    • Simply read the question on your behalf: if the topic is sufficiently sensitive that you don’t actually want your voice included in the episode, you can simply write the question in the email (see below), and we’ll read it out (unsourced).

We’ve got flexibility!

Step 3: Email the audio file to advice@analyticshour.io by April 12, 2024

The final step is to send the audio file (or a typed question, if you’re really, really not comfortable with the audio format) to advice@analyticshour.io by April 12, 2024. Send the file as an attachment or, if you prefer, as a shareable link from any ol’ sharing service you’d like.

That’s it! If you have any questions about the process, email advice@analyticshour.io and we’ll answer them!

The legal stuff (one more time): By submitting a question, you are agreeing to have the audio file you submit included in a future episode of the show. Any constraints that you include in the email when you submit the question will be respected.
