How to Sound Great As a Podcast Guest

Are you scheduled to come on a podcast as a guest? If you want to be invited back, or appear on any other podcast interviews for that matter, you need to have good audio.

    This is so helpful. I have a full season of podcasts wrapped up, and I used my voice memo on my phone for the majority of it. That and Zoom. {insert chagrin emoji}

    I’ve taken a hiatus to catch up on life, but this gets me excited about the next season. Thanks for breaking it down so well! I’m saving this post for future reference.

    God bless! 🙂

    Thank you so much for sharing this, Thomas. I did my first guest appearance on a podcast a few months ago. So enjoyable, but this information would have been super helpful. However, now I have the tools early-on and will be prepared for the next one!
