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.

Cool, we decided to want to register a domain name, how do we do it?
Here are the steps to follow: [Read more…] about How (And Why) To Register A Domain Name For Your Podcast

You’re starting a podcast and are wondering “what’s the best microphone for podcasting?”
The good news is that for most people, that answer is easy: get the ATR2100x-USB here.
