Show Notes

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.

Deviate: Creative Cross-Training (ft. Rolf Potts)

Travel writer Rolf Potts’ podcast, Deviate, is usually an interview show with other writers, travelers and filmmakers reflecting on their experiences and sometimes waxing philosophical. Usually, because, true to its name, some episodes of Deviate stray from both topic and format. Alternative formats have included narrative, essay, chatcast, and the one we feature here: an episode about a 20+ mile walk, with all audio recorded while on that walk.  Jay and Rolf discuss the value in exercising different creative muscles, even if it costs you some downloads. Also, the art of capturing a story in the moment without much pre-planned structure, the magic dust of chemistry between people on a podcast, and how Rolf has stayed true to his show’s premise, even when he deviates from the topic of travel.  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit 3clipspodcast.com for all episodes of the show.  LEARN MORE ABOUT 3 CLIPS HOST JAY ACUNZO Subscribe to his newsletter, explore his course for podcasters, or watch and listen to all of Jay’s shows and projects at jayacunzo.com.
