Interviewing Tips for Podcasting

In Killer Interviewing Tips for Podcasters, Part 1, Jack Herrington advises us to start with the topic:

“What are people talking about? What are YOU talking about? Find a person at the center of the swirl and come up with three or four questions that you are dying to ask.

“After that, it’s a matter of persistence to get that interview.”

I have been surprised at how many podcasts from news organizations are really, really boring. One reason may be that the interview subject is often just another reporter at the same organization. So Herrington is right on the money when he recommends that we go out and find a good person to interview — someone who actually KNOWS SOMETHING about the topic.
