When you’re interviewing a guest on your podcast, you want to throw them a few curve balls that’ll make the show a real home run.

Your questions need to be thought-provoking, considerate, and personable so listeners can hear the human within the artist or the expert you’re speaking with.

In order to get those more raw, intimate answers, you need to build a connection with your guest. Butter them up with a few softies that’ll help them get loose and feel more comfortable opening up during the interview.

You’ll know you’ve broken the ice with them when their answers sound more fluid their tone becomes more relaxed. It’s always a good sign if you make them laugh a little, too.

Along you with your simple, go-to questions like: “Tell us a little about yourself and your project,” “How long have you been working in this industry,” “What have you learned from your work,” “How do you hope to impact your audience,” and “What are your overarching goals,” you need to balance them out with some truly hard-hitting questions that make them really think for a moment.

Throughout this article, we’re going to cover some of our most impactful questions we ask on our own podcast, Tech Qualified.

These questions have evoked some of the most interesting responses from our guests and their answers really resonated with us as well as our listeners.

Starting a podcast and want your own custom domain name?

Or maybe you don’t want your podcast’s website to be at thebestpodcast.libsyn.com but instead be at thebestpodcast.com.

That second version is much easier to remember or share, and you’re not promoting another company (that you’re already paying, by the way) in the process.

Quick note: You can’t actually register your podcast name on iTunes or other platforms. Getting the domain name (and relevant social media profiles) is the best way to secure your podcast name.
