Digging into the ideas of standing out as an authentic host or how showcasing yourself as an authentic guest can make for better shows, better engagement and better conversations. Especially in this new sea of some hosts just trying to get everyone they can on their show, while some guests with or without authority, spamming to get on every show they can.

Podcast guest soliciting and podcast host booking tactics is S7.E9.#122 from the brand messaging podcast; Wait What Really OK.

These concepts go back and forth between the podcaster and the guest or representative trying to be on a podcast or get their client on a podcast.

According to data compiled from PodcastHosting.Org, there are over one million podcasts out there with over 29 million episodes to date as of September 2020.

In turn, you have a lot of podcasters that are chasing guests and a lot of guests that are chasing podcasters. One of the key problems that plagues both sides is that both forget that this is such a large market. And in those solicitations, they often sound very template like and very impersonal. Add in the issues of ego and arrogance as both guests and hosts will present less than accurate information about their shows or their authority and you run into more issues.

This is a topic that could be a series, but the main points covered include bringing authenticity to your ask, taking away the impersonal and creating a greater sense of authenticity and coming right to the point and asking what are you doing with your show?

In the end, are you being true to yourself, the show you are trying to get on and the topics that are being discussed? Or are you only trying to get on another show to self-promote and market yourself? With so much of that happening so often, hosts are beginning to wise up to the false hype. The same goes for the guests that are learning they don’t need to be on every show and are not buying in to the hype coming from the other direction.

Yes, there is great reach in podcasts but it can also do damage as well. Whether as a host or a guest, bring the authenticity of you to the table and table the crazy overly hype, impersonal and spammy approaches that way to many others use.

The Piketon Massacre

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
