Show Notes

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.

Storybound: Going Against the Norm (ft. Jude Brewer)

Radio theatre is defined as a dramatized performance — no visual, only dialogue and sounds to manifest images in the listeners’ minds, resulting in a uniquely psychological experience. This mode of storytelling began in the 1920s, flourishing by the 1940s, then evolving in the 21st century in the form of podcasts. And while Jude Brewer’s podcast Storybound falls into the category of radio theatre, it doesn’t quite sound like the rest of them. Inside today’s episode, Jay and Jude discuss the collaboration between voice and music. Over the past four seasons, Storybound listeners have been treated to their favorite authors reading some of their most powerful writing, designed with immersive sound environments and experimental cross-genre music compositions handcrafted and arranged by creator and host Jude Brewer. Jude is a writer, actor, and musician. He’s also the editor and sound designer for his own show Storybound. Most recently, Jude won First Place in the KCRW Radio Race, for which his piece “BUZZY” received critical acclaim. His weekly newsletter, How Long Must I Belong To This? is currently being developed into a show.

The Learning Leader Show: Interview Dance Moves (ft. Ryan Hawk)

Ryan is an author, public speaker and leadership coach, with a background in corporate management. His podcast is a way for Ryan to learn, along with his listeners, the qualities of excellence in leadership. But here’s the thing about leaders: they’re used to talking in front of people, used to being behind a mic. So how does Ryan get his guests to open up, avoid canned answers, and give his listeners something they haven’t heard before? On this episode, Ryan Hawk shares tips and stories about how to be persistent about getting that dream guest without coming off as obnoxious, the importance of preparation, an unconventional way to start an author interview, and more.
