Be a guest on the Alpha Geek Podcast
- You are a leader or influencer in technology or digital
- You have stories and leadership lessons to share
- You have likely reflected on your leadership journey and consciously experimented to improve over time
- You would like to raise your profile, promote what you’re doing, or you’d just like to share and help others.
You would be interviewed by Andrew Ramsden, but on this show, you are the star. You are the Alpha Geek.
Andrew will guide the interview to try to help uncover your stories, leadership successes, failures, lessons, tip, techniques and philosophies.
Interviews can be in person or remote depending on locations and schedules.
Frenetically Answered Questions
Do I have to be a geek?
You don’t need deep technical experience, however, you have to be a geek for something… e.g.communication, design, leadership?
The focus here is on leadership, learning and lessons—which as it turns out, transcend technical vs non-technical leadership.
Do I have to be a CIO, CDO, CTO?
No. There are great leaders at all levels in the organisation.
You don’t have to be on the C-Suite to have relevant insights for us all.
Do I have to be a manager?
Nope. You might be someone who influences and/or leads others without direct reports.
You might be someone who’s been in leadership positions previously, but decided it wasn’t for you.
Heck, if you have little to no leadership experience, and you’re open to some on-air coaching, that would also make an interesting and relevant episode.
Can I promote my business / product / band / pet goldfish?
The short answer is: Yes.
The long answer is: Let’s talk about it, but unless it really doesn’t fit with the values of the show (specifically integrity) then the answer will be yes.
1. Initial chat
We have an initial chat to confirm if the show is a good mutual fit and get to know each other better, 15 minutes.
We record the interview (in person or remotely), this takes around 1 and a half hours.
You have the opportunity to review the audio and leave feedback if there are sections you’re not comfortable with, preferably within 1–2 weeks.
Times provided are a rough guide, but end-to-end this process should only take between 3-6 weeks.
We request a photo, interview release signature and anything else needed to pull together the episode.
We edit and prepare the episode then schedule it for release. This can take a couple of weeks.
Once the episode is released you will receive an email notification. We encourage you to tell those you think will be interested in your interview.

For a remote interview, you will need a decent microphone that connects to a PC or laptop.
The easiest approach is a USB mic like:
- this one ($89) is great quality
- or even that one ($19) is a lot better than a phone or PC/Laptop/Webcam microphone.
If you don’t have one, that’s ok, just let us know in the form.
