Personally, I follow and interact with folks online for awhile before I invite them on my podcast. I can do this because the topics I’ve covered before recently have been topics that I’ve been involved in for many years, so I’ve had a lot of people to invite who’ve I’ve already had an online relationship with. But not everyone has this kind of breathing room with guest scheduling. So what can you do if you're newer to the space you're talking about in your podcast? Try this.
In cases like this, a podcast pre-interview is such a good idea. You get to get any awkwardness out of the way before recording, can check to see if they fit the content and vibe of your show. Here’s a pre-interview issue from The Audio Storyteller newsletter that I think will help you.
If you need help with your pre-interview process, questions, etc, feel free to reach out. I’d love to help you sort that out so you can concentrate on the beautiful connections you can create instead of these organizational details.
