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.

REPLAY: 3 Books: How to Make an Interview Show Extraordinary (ft. Neil Pasricha)

The podcast 3 Books was selected by Apple as a Top Podcast for 2018 and has featured some truly incredible guests: Malcolm Gladwell, Judy Blume, Seth Godin, David Sedaris, Pete Holmes, and more.

Us neither…) Plus, host Neil Pasricha shares his techniques for warming up guests so they spill the goods, as well as his cold outreach email that he used to land his most famous guest, Judy Blume!

6 Nuggets: Take-Home Insights from our Incredible Guests (ft. the producers of 3 Clips)

Jay is on paternity leave (so cute! https://www.instagram.com/p/CPYK1-NjEr6/), and we the producers – Andrea Muraskin and Cherie Turner – are taking the reins this time.

So with Jay awash in diapers and drool, we’re both sharing three “nuggets” of wisdom from the archive that shine particularly brightly for each of us – in the form of clips, of course!  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.

Bonus: Producers: What Do They Do!? (ft. Rebecca Sananes of Pivot)

Bonus: Producers: What Do They Do!? (ft. Rebecca Sananes of Pivot)

For this special episode, Jay invited Rebecca Sananes, lead producer for Pivot, with Kara Swisher and Scott Galloway, as well as 3 Clips producer Cherie Turner, to get on the mic and talk about what they do.  You’ll get an insightful behind-the-scenes look from the people who influence and shape shows—very big and less big—in ways that are not obvious to the outside world (and that’s largely the goal). Where the hosts are the front-facing personality, the producers help shape the show in ways both large and small, off the mic (mostly). Learn why Rebecca wants people to know that producers are artists and thinks this is the best job in the world—and why Cherie thinks producers get to do all the “fun stuff.”  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.

Sound Design & Music Composition (ft. Sam Riddell & Joel Roston)

This special episode explores sound design and music composition with guests Sam Riddell and Joel Roston. Among many other projects and roles, Sam is the sound designer of In Those Genes (and she was featured with that show’s host, Dr. Janina Jeff, in a previous 3 Clips episode). Joel is a musician and composer who creates music for podcasts, film, and video. He’s co-owner of Titlecard Music & Sound, a music library and custom composition company for creators.  In this episode, Sam and Joel break down clips of their own work, as well as a clip from host Jay. Sound design and music are powerful tools, but challenging for many podcasters. Sam and Joel discuss how to start doing this work on your own as well as how to work with professionals like themselves to get the results you’re after. They also talk about how they approach their own work.  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.

Creative Hotline: Hidden Elements of a Call-In Show (ft. Allen Gannett)

When marketing experts and buddies Allen Gannett and Shane Snow decided to do a show together, they looked out over the podcast landscape and saw a wasteland of sameness – sooo many interview shows with business leaders and authors about how they achieved success. So after some research, they decided to serve their market in a different way: they made Creative Hotline, a call-in advice show about creativity. In this episode of 3 Clips, Jay talks with co-host Allen Gannett about the big and small decisions that go into making this unique show, from pitching to a network to writing a Drake trivia quiz. Plus: relatability, playing character, “performer voice,” and more.  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.
