Hosting Podcasts

October 15, 2021 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

This discusses contemplates the task of hosting podcasts.  Many podcast franchises succeed on the strength of their hosts. Hosts influence the character of podcast series.  A great host can be the reason that people connect with a podcast.  Bad hosting can ruin even the best show concept.  A host’s performance is an important determinant of a podcast’s success.

We will discuss the job of hosting.  Expected topics include:

  • What does a host do?  Functional roles of a host.
  • Is there a formula to hosting well?
  • Research and show preparation
  • Tips on managing small group interactions
  • What makes for an “engaging” performance?
  • “Authenticity”
