On this episode, I speak with Vidhya Iyer, the host of "Mindful Businesses." If you’ve listened to prior episodes, you’re probably used to some of the standard questions I tend to ask our guests — what is their creative process, what have they learned about themselves through podcasting. And I would say the first part of my conversation with Vidhya — to the extent you know me — is somewhat predictable. Vidhya shares some of her podcasting secrets, from why she believes in word of mouth as essential to podcast promotion to the voice exercises she’s adopted before she records, inspired by the practices of radio journalists at NPR. But our conversation toward the end really surprised me in the best way. Vidhya shares a more complicated side of podcasting: namely, how do you handle a situation where a guest isn’t being authentic, or tries to promote something that doesn’t align with your values, or brand.
