Show Notes

In this episode we feature Kinsey Grant, host of the interview podcast Business Casual. It’s part of the business media outlet Morning Brew. Kinsey is a young journalist and interviewer who sits down with some of the biggest names in their field. She’s interviewed the likes of Mark Cuban and Mary Barra, Arianna Huffington and Meg Whitman. In our conversation with Kinsey, we break down her interview with former Google CEO (and oh so much more) Eric Schmidt.

We take a deep dive into “the art of the interview” and explore how Kinsey books, preps for, and engages with her guests to get the insights she knows her audience will appreciate.

REPLAY: Have You Heard George’s Podcast? A Masterclass in Powerful Writing

When you host a podcast, your voice becomes a creative tool. Perhaps for the first time, you’re challenged to think about your words as something you wield, something you can strategically deploy to create meaning and inspire action in others. Your voice is just like any other medium (text, imagery, video, or audio). You can learn how to use it better. That may seem like a new idea. But here’s something that isn’t new to any of us: Writing. Writing is the engine that drives your voice, the direction you’re giving to yourself, and the shape you give to your thoughts. You know how to write, which means you know how to use your voice as a more powerful creative tool. Few hosts on the planet are better at this than George the Poet, the spoken word artist and former rapper who now hosts Have You Heard George’s Podcast?  In this episode of 3 Clips, host Jay Acunzo breaks down the subtle but powerful pieces of George’s performance (in the first-ever episode of HYHGP) — and we find several ways of using our own writing better to then use our own voices better.

Bonus: Producers: What Do They Do!? (ft. Rebecca Sananes of Pivot)

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.”  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit http://3clipspodcast.com 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 http://jayacunzo.com  LEARN MORE ABOUT CASTOS 3 Clips is a Castos Original Series.
