Show Notes

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.”

Resilient Retail: Shopify's Latest Big Bet on Podcasting & the Subtle Art of the Interview (ft. Kristen LaFrance)

Kristen shares thoughtful insights into how she preps for and conducts interviews that specifically serve the needs of her listeners. She also talks about how she navigated rising to the occasion when the stakes got high: Kristen was told just days into her new job at Shopify that she’d be taking over the podcast hosting duties from Harley Finklestein, the company’s president. And then she learned that he’d be her first interview guest for the show. Talk about pressure! A key component to Kristen’s, and by extension the show’s, success is how much thought went into developing the show’s premise. Also critical is that Kristen has a deep understanding of the retail world and she is actively involved in the community she serves. In other words, she knows who her audience is and the type of information they will benefit from, and then she goes and gets it. Resilient Retail launched in October of 2020 and is a twice-weekly interview show that focuses on the world of retail, with a particular focus on serving small business owners trying to figure out the online space. Resilient Retail also has a YouTube channel and a robust five-year growth plan that extends far beyond the podcast. Please join 3 Clips host and Marketing Showrunners founder Jay Acunzo as he talks with Kristen about all that she has learned and how she’s applying that to create just the right kind of interview show that will serve her growing audience.INTRODUCING GROWABLE SHOWS, a new on-demand course about show development from Jay:https://jayacunzo.com/growable-showsJOIN THE NEWSLETTER: Subscribe to “Playing Favorites,” Jay Acunzo’s weekly email, and get 1 new concept or technique every ...

A Simple Herstory: Audio as Theater (ft. Jocelyn Kuritsky)

Here’s a common story. The 2020 pandemic come along and it seriously altered someone’s plans. Here’s a less common story. A theater actor and producer can’t put on live shows any longer so she teams up with a playwright to create a one of a kind podcast experience. Well, that’s exactly what Jocelyn Kuritsky did. The result? A Simple Herstory A Simple Herstory is described as a “a theatrical and high concept podcast series about the women who have run for President of the United States.” And it is quite theatrical indeed. 23 different actors (all women, by the way) connected via clean feed to create this comedy infused piece of audio drama based on real events. Jocelyn produced the podcast through her company, The Muse Project and for this episode of 3 Clips, she joined Evo to discuss what it’s like to bring in an existing creative skillset into a different medium.

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, ...
