How To Host A Panel Discussion On Odyssey

Odyssey creators resonate with their audiences because of their authentic and unique perspectives and experiences they share. Panel Discussions allow us to bring multiple creators together, providing a range of perspectives and experiences to broaden reader understanding.

The following steps provide the framework to host and write a panel discussion on Odyssey.

Step One — Pick your panel topic

Since doing a panel discussion involves asking multiple people questions and including their answers, it's important to pick a topic that people are passionate about in real-time.

A good place to start is to see what's trending on Google, and Twitter, and go from there.

Step Two — Identify your panel

1. It should be around three to five people, including yourself.

2. They all have to be registered as Odyssey creators.

3. Creator Tip: consider how their similarities or differences will play into your article

4. If you want to make an introduction graphic for your panel to embed in your article, learn more here.

Step Three — Come up with your panel questions

This part will obviously be different for every panel. The part that is consistent here is that YOU get to be the one to lead and dictate the conversation by asking the right questions.

A good amount of questions to ask for a panel is anything between five and 10 questions.

Step Four — Get your responses

1. Send your questions to each panel member (email, Google survey, or Slack).

2. Set a deadline to respond (we suggest giving them at least one to two days).

Step 5 — Put your article together

1. Provide context for your article by writing an introduction to the topic at hand.

2. Introduce your panel by providing their names, where they go to school or do for a living, and anything else that feels relevant depending on the panel.

3. List your questions and answers by panel member.

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
