      super useful info…
      surprisingly rare video of you without joking and explaining seriously 😛
      All tips are worth to follow for successful episode/podcast…I totally agree with tip #2 don’t script it all…it really helps to make sure you are in customers/listeners shoes and asking all possible questions they might get…it is also perfect when doing interviews….like you said you will show that you are genuinely curious about the topic and also about the guest, it makes the total conversation more interesting and authentic for everyone!!
      You are definitely doing it…going deep into a topic and asking questions according to the discussion…!
      you said just write down main keywords/topics/sub-topics/examples instead of writing the entire script for the episode…please share a rough work of the script that you used before recording an episode (preferably interview)…

      AGREE!!! I love pausing and thinking about what I wanted to say next so the podcast flows nicely. I also dont script. I use bullet points.
