The Talent Show - Ep. 086 - Why Banter Can Be Great OR Kill Your Podcast
3 days ago
One of the things that kills momentum for podcasts is small talk. Or "banter" between hosts and co-hosts. If not done right. Let me be clear...small talk is a GREAT way to show your most authentic and human side. And you should show some personality. Laugh...smile...share something that is uniquely you. It's just when you banter without purpose you can kill an episode. Or even your whole podcast. In this episode I share a recent story where a marketing podcast spent too much time talking about gardening (yes, gardening) and how that could have been a great touch, but now I will never go back and listen to that show again. ever. Enjoy!
