Can I be on your podcast?
I get asked this a lot and it's always hard to say no, but it's always a "no." A few main reasons:
I don't know you, your message or what you're about
I don't have the time to vet you
This isn't primarily an interview-based podcast
The people who come on are people I am genuinely interested in speaking with, know their content and know they have something of value for my audience.
I reach out to people I want on. No exceptions.
