Show Notes

We’re hard at work on new episodes of 3 Clips, so here’s an oldie but a goodie — one of our most popular episodes…

We’ve got a dynamic co-hosting duo: welcome Ashley Hamer and Cody Gough of Curiosity Daily. A daily, yes, daily (!), podcast about science, which is part of Discovery.

Host Jay Acunzo gets into great topics with Cody and Ashley, starting with, how, just how do they put out a well researched and fact-checked show every single day? This episode also covers topics of performing on the mic, how these two make a co-hosting relationship work, how to communicate science to a general audience, and more. 

And to that last topic, being a science communicator to a wide audience, Ashley had a great thought to add after we recorded, so hang out past all the credits and even past the closing theme music to hear what she had to say. It’s worth it!

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 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  LEARN MORE ABOUT CASTOS 3 Clips is a Castos Original Series.

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!

True Love & Other Noncommunicable Diseases: Making the Personal...Performative! (ft. Brianna Barrett)

A camera. A cancer diagnosis. True love. Romantic comedy. Award-winning writer and storyteller Brianna Barrett has performed her show about serious illness and resilience to audiences along the west coast since 2016. Now Brianna reimagines the experience of her one-woman play in audio form, navigating the threads of her life that continue to come together in surprising and unusual ways, even amid a global pandemic. Welcome to Brianna Barrett’s semi-limited series: True Love & Other Noncommunicable Diseases, a podcast that manages to carve out a sharp narrative niche, elevating “coming of age” by swapping tragedy for comedy, and vice versa, in a heartbreakingly awkward and hilarious study of narrator-versus-performer, and the memory of self. Inside today’s episode, as timely as ever, Jay and Brianna break down the meta-meta and the nitty gritty of storytelling. What does “better now” mean for a cancer survivor? And what would your ex say if you told them that you had written a play about your past relationship and then performed it on stage for thousands of strangers over the past several years? And by the way. You’re going to read that play aloud to them. Alone. While recording their reaction. Brianna Barrett is a playwright, storyteller, obscure history buff, and avid tea-lover. Her full-length theatrical work has been developed at Artists Repertory Theater, Theatre33, Fertile Ground Festival, HART Theatre, and UCLA. Her TV work has been developed with Stuber, Farah Films, Hollywood Laundromat and ICM. She’s performed at venues such as Pickathon (yes the music festival!), and now she’s performing in your ears via her debut limited series podcast, True Love & Other Noncommunicable Diseases.
