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.

Content Inc: Inside a Short-Form Monologue Podcast

Jay welcomes guest Joe Pulizzi to the podcast this week to talk about his short-form, monologue podcast, Content Inc. Joe reveals that this show began as a promotional tool for his book by the same name (the 2nd edition releases May 2021). It has continued as a place where he can share information he’s learned in his over 20 years in marketing, content creation, and entrepreneurship. The show now supports the thinking behind his new business, The Tilt.  In this episode, Jay and Joe discuss how to stay natural on the mic, when it’s just you and a mic; the importance of finding your niche; and how having a point of view helps build a connection to your audience. They also get into a bit of what Joe writes and teaches people about: how to be creators who are also entrepreneurs, or what Joe calls, content entrepreneurs.

Bonus Episode: 10% Happier's Show Development Process (ft. Jen Poyant and Nate Tobey)

What do folks from public radio learn about show development that the rest of us don't understand? How do some of the top shows in the world START? What techniques, processes, or mental heuristics do professional showrunners use to ensure that they're developing strong show premises and IP -- not just "yet another" podcast about the same topics as their competitors?Today, we go inside a live call from our latest podcast workshops, and we hear from Nate Tobey and Jen Poyant.Nate Tobey (formerly of APMG and WGBH) is the director of content at 10% Happier, and Jen Poyant (former WNYC producer and co-founder of Stable Genius Productions) is their Executive Producer.10% Happier is a mindfulness and meditation tech company, co-founded by ABC News and Good Morning America anchor Dan Harris, and on the back of Harris's very popular podcast (also called 10% Happier), the company decided to create a slate of shows.On the call, Jay interviews Nate and Jen, with students chiming in near the end.Interested in our workshops?
