We are flipping the script, swapping seats, turning the tide here on Hosted. I get to exchange emails with podcast hosts all day, every day, because it’s my job. But rarely do I get an opportunity to chat about what a host’s favorite kitchen utensil is or their worst personality trait, and quite frankly I’m ready for hosts to sit in the hot seat for a change.

Just kidding, no hot seat here, just a good old-fashioned 1v1 to get to know what it is that makes a host put on those over-the-ear headphones, scoot in close to that mic and press record.

We will dive into topics like what makes a great podcast guest, unexpected outcomes from podcasting and how do you make yourself stand out in a sea of audio. So put in those AirPods, start folding some laundry, and listen to Hosted -- a podcast spotlighting podcast hosts -- so meta.
