Show Notes

The show we’re discussing with Jay, Standing Ovation, is kind of like 3 Clips, but for public speaking. Each episode, Jay interviews a public speaker and together they break down a favorite story that the guest tells on stage - with clips from those talks.

Jay Baer knows a thing or two about podcasting, both from the three shows he hosts and the shows he’s helped other companies launch through his business, Convince and Convert. On 3 Clips, he shares tips on how to ask guests questions they’ve never been asked before, the importance of signaling key lessons to your audience, and how to distill those lessons from your guest. Plus, a show-stopping impression of a vomiting cat!


Every week in Playing Favorites, Jay Acunzo shares a new idea or story exclusive to subscribers about making things that make a difference. Our one goal is to make the audience’s favorite things -- so what does that take, anyway?

Juleyka has worked behind the scenes in various capacities on many hit shows, including 70 Million, Latina to Latina, Driving the Green Book, Marvel’s Voices, Code Switch, and more Her depth of experience merged in a flash to become one of her newest hits: How to Talk to [Mamí & Papí] About Anything.
