All of us have had an “interview gone wrong.” Probably more than one. Connection issues. The wrong bio information. A guest who wouldn’t stop talking. The “yes/no” guy. Prima donnas. Terrible content. Weird distractions. Heck, I once interviewed a guy for my radio show who was running on a treadmill!
At RINGR, our goal is to make your recorded interviews sound better and connect easier…but we fully realize that there are plenty of elements out of our (and your) control which can totally derail a conversation. So, rather than sweep that stuff under the rug and ignore it, we thought it might be fun to talk about it. Three times a week. In our very own podcast.
That’s why we’ve launched “My Worst Interview Ever”…a podcast where I talk with the world’s all-time greatest interviewers about their all-time worst interviews. Our first guest is none other than Entrepreneur on Fire’s John Lee Dumas, who tells an incredible story about his worst interview (with a legendary rock star)…and then shares some personal details on why he is who he is today. All in less than 15 minutes.
In the coming days and weeks, we’ll also talk to Podcast Answer Man Cliff Ravenscraft, The Mobile Pro Shawn Smith, The App Guy Paul Kemp, XM Radio’s Doug Hannah, Blubrry’s Todd Cochrane, Libsyn’s Rob Walch, syndicated radio host Brant Hansen, Dave Jackson, Dan Franks, Jeff Brown, Daniel J. Lewis, and dozens of others. You won’t want to miss their stories!
In addition to listening to the debut episode of MWIE, please be sure to follow My Worst Interview Ever on Twitter and Facebook…and then share the podcasts you like. We trust you will have many favorites. You’ll also find us on iTunes, Stitcher, and many other fine podcast distributors.
Happy recording (and listening)…
