Ok, So I’ve listened to the podcast, and I am focusing on the negatives in order to improve. I have over a decade of interviewing experience, but it is mainly for law enforcement purposes. With this specific themed podcast, I have had a difficult time trying to balance entertainment, letting a conversation go naturally, and not try to brow beat “OK, but as a woman…”. I also have fallen into the same boring trope “Oh, only 3 people listen” which is dumb. Finally, I found myself overly agreeing and adding to the interview in a way that made myself cringe.
I mansplain. Which is one of the worst things to do in an effort to achieve what my goal is for this. I did it horribly with my wife, because I knew the answers and her viewpoints -I wanted to add to it and I wanted to explain certain references that some listeners might not get. But it the end it sounds horrific.
So I am learning. Please have patience. My next podcast is already recorded, so I can’t fix it, but I promise to learn and do better.
