Ditch 20min interviews for 60min+ conversations

By Thunder Egg and Baby Zeus - Mar 22 2020
Read more
Traditional talk show interviews are what we’ve had all along - short snippets where guests recycle the same preloaded responses to the same predictable questions we already heard from whichever late night TV appearance or magazine article they featured in the week before. Podcasting format allows for something totally novel. Ditch the dime a dozen stock question/answer interview in exchange for authentic conversations that aren’t limited 20-30min max. The only thing that has to happen is make the episodes longer. Authentic conversations will naturally take shape if the format is extended to 1hr, preferably more.
