Sixth Lesson In Podcasting: Be A Good Listener
By Cheval John
This post is the sixth lesson (chapter) on podcasting.
It is part of a series of posts for my second book “8 Lessons Every Podcaster Needs To Learn.”
To read the back story on why I decided to blog the book, you can click here.
Here is the 6th lesson below, short and sweet.
One of the most important things a person can do during a podcast is listening carefully to what their guest are saying.
Most of the time, the interviewer will ask a question and then focus on what they are going to ask next.
When a person only focus on what they are going to ask instead of listening to their guest, they miss out on an answer so insightful that can benefit the listener.
If you don’t listen, the guest will believe that you do not care about what they have to share with you and your audience.
When that happens, your podcast might suffer and it will be hard to build it back up again.
So if you want to gain insightful information during your podcast that will benefit your audience, be a good listener.
Your guest will appreciate it so much that they will give you praise when they are showcasing their appearance on your podcast.
