    What Terry Gross taught Ian Chillag about interviewing (and more)

    This material, which initially landed on the cutting room floor, is just as compelling as what went into the interview episode last year. We just didn’t have time to include it in the regular season.

    Crossover with Podcast Brunch Club

    Hello and welcome to a bonus episode of Inside Podcasting! Today we are featuring an episode from the Podcast Brunch Club podcast, in which PBC founder Adela Mizrachi interviews Alie Ward, host of the Ologies pod. Ologies is a show where Ward, who is a humorist and science correspondent, "asks smart people stupid questions and the answers might change your life." 
    Podcast Brunch Club is more than just a podcast. Every month Adela and her team put out a themed listening list. People listen on their own time and then members gather in real life to discuss the playlist (there is also a virtual chapter).

    This Week in Startups podcast, Jason Calacanis

    In this episode, Skye interviews entrepreneur and angel investor Jason Calacanis. Jason, who is Skye's boss, also hosts two podcasts, This Week in Startups and Angel. Before this interview was recorded, Jason told Skye she could ask him anything — and she took him up on that. The pair discuss: 
    Jason's rollercoaster childhood; What drove him to get out of Brooklyn; The wild ups and downs of his entrepreneurial career; How he got into podcasting; Why a network TV show featuring Jason was axed; Why Skye thinks Jason is just a teensy bit Trumpian; His favorite podasts. Watch Jason practice Taekwondo as a wee young man here.
