Design Matters: Deep Research as Respect (ft. Debbie Millman)

Debbie Millman started her interview show about design as a radio program to fulfill her need to explore her own creativity. That was 16 years ago, and Design Matters has been in production every since: it’s the world’s first podcast about design. Debbie has welcomed over 500 guests to her now wildly popular podcast to explore creative culture and how some of the most influential thinkers, artists, musicians, writers, and designers create their work, career, and life. In this interview, host Jay Acunzo and Debbie discuss how she got started as a host, what’s kept her going, and why her research documents for each and every guest can be as long as 70 pages. This is an episode you won’t want to miss. And bring a pen and paper because you’ll want to take notes.

You Heard Me Write: Structure Sets Us Free (ft. Kacie Willis)

You Heard Me Write: Structure Sets Us Free (ft. Kacie Willis)

Every so often we come across a show so refreshing, so original, it revamps our whole idea of what a podcast can be. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Atlanta-based sound designer Kacie Willis made her living from live theater. In 2020, Kacie found herself stuck at home without any gigs – and, like many of us, watching people hide behind screen names to attack each other on the internet. So Kacie created You Heard Me Write, a podcast that draws on the creativity of local writers and sound artists, and uses anonymity to unite rather than divide. The show uses a very specific episode structure, and we promise you haven’t heard anything like it before. In the interview, Kacie also discusses working with Spotify, and how she-  a self-described introvert-  developed her hosting persona.  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit http://3clipspodcast.com for all episodes of the show.  LEARN MORE ABOUT 3 CLIPS HOST JAY ACUNZO Subscribe to his newsletter, explore his course for podcasters, or watch and listen to all of Jay’s shows and projects at http://jayacunzo.com  LEARN MORE ABOUT CASTOS 3 Clips is a Castos Original Series.

Creative Elements: Setting Your Guest Up for Success (ft. Jay Clouse)

It’s a hard truth about interview shows: if the guest doesn’t deliver, it’s not their fault. Instead, it’s the host’s responsibility to walk away with an insightful, informative, and engaging recording. In this episode, 3 Clips host Jay Acunzo talks with Jay Clouse, a podcaster who does an exemplary job of setting his guests up for success; by drawing on research, past experience, voice over, and a little bit of sound design. Listen to learn how Jay’s show, Creative Elements – where he interviews creators about how they came to perform their craft full time – stands out from the pack. Also in this episode: how to book guests you don’t know with a great cold email.  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit http://3clipspodcast.com for all episodes of the show.  LEARN MORE ABOUT 3 CLIPS HOST JAY ACUNZO Subscribe to his newsletter, explore his course for podcasters, or watch and listen to all of Jay’s shows and projects at http://jayacunzo.com  LEARN MORE ABOUT CASTOS 3 Clips is a Castos Original Series.

Democracy Works: Bridging Academia and a General Audience (ft. Jenna Spinelle)

This episode features Jenna Spinelle, co-host and lead interviewer for the show Democracy Works. Produced by the McCourtney Institute for Democracy at Penn State and WPSU Penn State, this show seeks to answer questions about what it means to live in a democracy: they get into the structure and history behind this foundational framework.  Jenna shares her experiences and insights into bringing dense academic materials and conversations to life for an audience that includes academics and nonacademics alike. Her co-hosts are academics as are many of her guests. Her role, as she sees it, is largely about being a bridge builder between the academy and the general public. Along the way, she helps others cross this divide as well.  This is an excellent episode for any creative who aims to bring complicated ideas to a wider audience.  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit http://3clipspodcast.com for all episodes of the show.  LEARN MORE ABOUT JAY Subscribe to his newsletter, explore his course for podcasters, or watch and listen to all of Jay’s shows and projects at http://jayacunzo.com  LEARN MORE ABOUT CASTOS 3 Clips is a Castos Original Series.

REPLAY: Have You Heard George’s Podcast? A Masterclass in Powerful Writing

When you host a podcast, your voice becomes a creative tool. Perhaps for the first time, you’re challenged to think about your words as something you wield, something you can strategically deploy to create meaning and inspire action in others. Your voice is just like any other medium (text, imagery, video, or audio). You can learn how to use it better. That may seem like a new idea. But here’s something that isn’t new to any of us: Writing. Writing is the engine that drives your voice, the direction you’re giving to yourself, and the shape you give to your thoughts. You know how to write, which means you know how to use your voice as a more powerful creative tool. Few hosts on the planet are better at this than George the Poet, the spoken word artist and former rapper who now hosts Have You Heard George’s Podcast?  In this episode of 3 Clips, host Jay Acunzo breaks down the subtle but powerful pieces of George’s performance (in the first-ever episode of HYHGP) — and we find several ways of using our own writing better to then use our own voices better.
