Bonus Episode: Interview Techniques, Dissected (ft. Kristen LaFrance, Shopify)

For this special episode, we narrow down on a foundation skill for podcasters: interviewing. Jay brings back guest Kristen LaFrance, who was featured on 3 Clips December 2020 to break the interview show she hosts and creates for Spopify, Resilient Retail. We love how much passion Kristen has for studying the art of interviewing as she looks to continually improve her own skills, so we asked her back to share her insights. Jay and Kristen each share three clips from interviewers they admire and break them down (so, uh, welcome to the first episode of 6 Clips? Haha, we kid!). They discuss creating a good interview tone or environment, the importance of doing research, the necessity of follow-up questions, respectfully creating tension with your guest, asking the questions your listener would ask, and so much more!

The Secret Adventures of Black People: Why Great Stories Hide in Plain Sight (ft. Nichole Hill)

Today’s featured podcast, The Secret Adventures of Black People, has a beautiful premise: that the everyday lives of Black people are extraordinary. But extracting and telling everyday stories in a way that sounds extraordinary takes intention, skill, and practice. Host and producer Nichole Hill’s storytelling style combines elements of fantasy, voyeurism, and comedy to create a show that peeks inside intimate moments in Black lives, and leaves the listener wanting more. In this episode, Nichole and Jay discuss how to interview to draw out stories, creating for yourself, and being vulnerable on the mic. Plus, tips on navigating the agonizing process of naming a new show and the trial-and-error process of making something that matters.

So how does Ryan get his guests to open up, avoid canned answers, and give his listeners something they haven’t heard before? On this episode, Ryan Hawk shares tips and stories about how to be persistent about getting that dream guest without coming off as obnoxious, the importance of preparation, an unconventional way to start an author interview, and more.
