The top interview podcasts are?
Now each of these I’ve chosen for different reasons. No one is the same. I will not say I agree with the interviewer in every situation, however, often times, I take something, a thought, an application, something away from the interview. So, here they are in no particular order.
I like her style of interviewing, because she keeps me up to date on the news. She also interviews people, that can bring value. Whether talking about sports, national security, or other topics that are faith related, I always walk away with something.
Next we have Tim Farriss.
He is an author and award-winning blogger, but his podcast is just one of those ones that is…well…good. His goal is to deconstruct successful people so you can do some of the same things they are doing. This can take the form of interviewing athletes, business owners, or people involved in politics. Now, I will say, about fifty percent of the time, I do not agree with the people he interviews, because he goes a little “new age-y” for me. However, the value I do get, is well worth keeping him in my feed for listening.
Then we have John Le Dumas.
He is an award-winning podcaster, who every single day, interviews entrepreneurs about their failings and their successes. He does his very best to draw out the gold for his listeners, who he calls “Fire Nation.” I like it because, while I may not connect with every interview he does, I like what he brings to the table.. and I tend to take something – a reminder, a tip, a tactic – something from his interviews.
Next, we have James Altiture.
He interviews people from all walks of life. Business, music, investing, and sometimes other areas. While it takes a bit, he goes into a deep dive. I find when I walk away, I’ve grown in some way. He asks probing questions, he may have intended to ask before hand, that he adapts to what the guest is saying. Further more, he truly researches his guests before hand, and it shows in every interview.
And last but not least, there is Dug and Wolf.
They are my favorite sports show. I can listen to them when ever I want on the radio while they play every morning. I find this worth while because I can keep up on my sports. I find their interviews well done, and in-depth when they bring people on. They are not long, but they are thoughtful.
I also learn a lot from Wolf about what it takes to succeed in his industry, owing to the fact he is a former NFL player, and his take on working hard. Often times, the world of sports can teach us much about business and life.
In conclusion. You may disagree, you may not like some of the shows I listed, and not all of them are in the realm of business and marketing. However, I learn something from each one. Further, if you listen to each of these, you will learn the art of how to conduct an interview. So, what about you? Who do you listen to and why?
To your success,
