046 | EMILY ANN PETERSON | How To Get Pure Gold Out Of Podcast Interviews

 

I'm SO excited to introduce you to my friend, Emily Ann Peterson, host of the BareNaked Bravery Podcast! Emily Ann is a nomadic singer/songwriter who started her podcast wanting to dig into what truly defines bravery - whether they know it or not!

We're digging deep into what exactly makes an absolutely show-stopping interview - so that your guest LOVES being on your show {so they want to come back!} + your audience can't stop listening.

Let's dive in!

HAVE I BEEN THROUGH TOO MUCH HARDSHIP TO TRY AGAIN?

  • We see someone who IS being brave, but they have no idea or are terrified of it. 
  • Usually, you can see your own bravery when you've broken through the hardship.
  • I consider it sacred when people share or put themselves out there with me. That is a sacred space.
  • Make the choice to keep going.
  • We are always managing expectations of the people around us. 
  • Owning up to your own insecurities can give you the courage to dig deeper in your interviews.
  • If you're putting yourself out there + exchanging money, beware the tie to your value!

 

"You can surprise yourself with your own bravery if you're not aware you've been building it over time." -Emily

 

I FEEL LIKE I HAVE A MESSAGE, BUT I FEEL A BLOCK ON ACTUALLY STARTING A SHOW:

  • Ignore the stress + pressure of being 'new + noteworthy'.
  • A podcast is an audio blog.
  • The fruit is at the end of the harvest.
  • You have to be very consistent at an expected amount of time.
  • It's more important that you're consistent than your launch being 'successful'.
  • Go + launch -- it's okay to launch with just 1 episode!
  • Think of it like 100 tiny micro-launches!
  • Remember, you never know who's listening

"You have to be in it for a committed amount of time before you start seeing results." -Emily

 

HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR SHOW IMPACTFUL?

  • At the end of every interview, I ask: "Who do you think I should interview next?" - that has brought me such incredible guests!
  • RESONATE BRAVERY: An outsider thinks someone is brave + therefore is inspired to be brave in their own circumstances.
  • Set your intention that there is one person out there that is going to get hope, inspiration or motivation from your episode.
  • I love to imagine a guest in the room with me + my interviewee...having that third person present makes it more intimate for my listeners.

"I hold my content calendar with an open hand." -Emily

 

HOW DOES HAVING A PODCAST EFFECT YOUR BUSINESS?

  • If you approach the right people for your show, they will say yes!

  • An added benefit of having a podcast is the added exposure.

  • It connects you with fellow entrepreneurs + grows your audience.

  • There's an extra level of networking I didn't expect!

  • Launching a fb group for listeners blew me out of the water!
