Show Notes

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.

BUT … it’s ultimately just another interview show.

So what makes the show special? And what can we learn? Today on 3 Clips, we profile a kindred podcast spirit with 3 Books (notice any similarities? 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!

CONFLICTED: The Process Driving Jaw-Dropping Shows

When journalist Jake Warren met Aimen Dean -- a former Al Qaeda bomb-maker turned agent for the British intelligence service MI6, who happened to be super smart and deeply knowledgeable about Middle East politics -- he knew he had hit storytelling pay dirt. So when Jake started his own podcasting company a few years later, he was determined to get Aimen behind the mic. But there were a couple of problems: the guy could talk for nine hours, and would sometimes get pretty deep in the weeds. So they brought in Thomas Small -- an author, documentary film producer, Middle East scholar, and good friend of Aimen’s - to be co host.The resulting podcast, CONFLICTED, from Jake’s company Message Heard, breaks down the complexities of history, religion and politics of the Middle East and puts them in a global context. The first season begins with 9/11 and focuses on the War on Terror and associated conflicts in the region. The second season is about the post-Cold War New World Order and how that era of US dominance affected the Middle East, and beyond. To the listener, it sounds like Thomas and Aimen are having a friendly conversation, sprinkled with Aimen’s often heart-stopping personal stories. But as you’ll hear, there’s lots of work that goes on behind the scenes to get to this place.In this episode, join 3 Clips host and Marketing Showrunners founder Jay Acunzo as he talks with Jake Warren about the large and small choices that make CONFLICTED a success - not only with Middle East politics nerds, but among a general audience too.NEWSLETTER:Subscribe to “Playing Favorites,” the newsletter from Jay Acunzo and Marketing Showrunners, ...
