I remember it as if it was yesterday. February 10th, 1993. I even still have the videotape of that one. Oprah’s interview with Michael Jackson. For me, that interview was, is and always will be memorable. Oprah was excellent at putting Michael at ease and making him comfortable enough to share the darker parts of his childhood, explain stuff on rumors made about him, talk about his kids and clarify his love for children. Oprah was the first one to have access to the King of.
It was more than 2 years ago. I felt thrilled. I had finally decided to launch my podcast. And I was pretty proud. There was a lot to do, though. Learning the platforms. Getting familiar with the tech side of things. Learning how to interview people. Crafting my interview flow. Conducting the interviews. I thought I was ok. Because I had taken a great deal of time to craft my interview flow from what I thought my audience wanted to know. From what I personally wanted to.
Who do you think about when I say interview? Oprah? Jimmy Fallon? Journalists? Human Resources employees? These are all good answers. But there are also other people that are worth considering. See, you don’t have to be a celebrity, a journalist or a person from the hiring department to interview people. I am thinking about: Podcasters. Bloggers. Authors. Entrepreneurs who are driven by creating great value for their audience. And who are looking forward to expanding their reach, building their brand and growing their business. .
