When a podcast host tries to one-up their guest, it's a bad thing. It's also bad when the host continues to interrupt their guest, hoping to plug their book, product, or just get a point in edgewise.
It's not a competition, podcaster. It's a collaboration.
The extreme opposite isn't any better, where a host abdicates the mic, and each episode is literally just about the guest telling their own story.
Yawn. Your audience wants your point of view. They listen to your show for a lot of reasons, and having quality guests is only one. One that's easily replicated and doesn't foster loyalty.
In this short episode, I'll give practical tips on removing the competition from the encounter, making a better show for you, your guests, and the most important party: your listener.
