What's Your Podcast Style?

Podcast Business Coach with Toby Goodman

I love that a properly set up podcast enables anyone to put out content on their own terms.

But just like publishing on any public platform with a view to sharing our content - we might receive feedback of all types.

When it comes to interviewing people on your podcast then, it’s worth taking a moment to decide what position you want to take as an interviewer.

Here are a few thoughts on how you might approach an interview and some pros and cons.

1. The Enthusiastic Interviewer

This kind of guest interview can be magic but it comes with risks. When you’re fully onboard with who your guest is and what they are doing they can really open up and help you create really great content.

But… If you know too much you could be at risk of alienating the listener and even coming across as a sycophant!

So be aware and keep a stock of signpost questions up your sleeve to help listeners stay engaged. For example.

Just because I understand what podcast hosting it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t ask someone like Todd Cochrane from the hosting and podcast tools company Blubrry - to help me serve my listeners with a question like… “For those listening who aren’t sure why they need safe podcast hosting, how would you explain the difference”?

2. The Cynical Interviewer

A fairly aggressive investigative journalist approach has the potential to get a juicy interview that’s highly listenable and could even make the headlines. But… It can create friction.

You just have to ask yourself… Is it the kind of friction you need? or… Are you just setting yourself upper the trolls and a load of unhelpful noise?

3. The Passive Interviewer

Be like a journalist. Take a balanced view… Be detached and ask questions that represent everyone’s viewpoints. For example - Why do you love podcasts? Followed by… What would you say to those people who don’t think podcasts are worth listening to?

You will get a balanced interview this way but it has the danger of being a little dry and the worst-case scenario is that it turns into the same cut-and-paste interview your guest has given hundreds if not, thousands of times before.

Here’s the good news. If you set it up properly. It’s your podcast. You get to decide what you say, how you say it, and to who you say it. You don’t need any blue check box to validate you!
