How to Be a Great Podcast Guest
You need to know the podcast host and audience before you jump on the show and start talking. You also need to like the podcast and relate to its listeners if you’re going to stay on theme and offer valuable content.
Plus, when you’re already a fan of the podcast, your enthusiasm will shine through to make you a more engaging person to listen to. And if you’re pitching yourself to podcast hosts, it will be immediately obvious if you know their podcast or not.
In your interview, reference back to other episodes if you can (and if it’s relevant). The host and their listeners will appreciate hearing new insight into an older conversation.
If you aren’t a longtime fan, make sure you listen to a few full episodes to familiarize yourself with the cadence, content, and configuration of the podcast.
