In this episode:
- Avoid conversational narcissism: Don't constantly steer the conversation back to yourself. Use "support responses" that encourage guests to continue their story.
- Properly prepare for interviews: Do more than just read a book cover or website bio. Research guests by listening to other podcast episodes, reading their books, and reviewing their social media accounts all the way back to the beginning.
- Have genuine curiosity: Ask great questions that show interest in the topic and respect the guest. If you lack interest, you may need to change topics or guests.
