05- Tips for podcasters on BEING INTERVIEWED — Max Flight

This episode of Skills In Screencasts and Podcasts is repurposed from its original posting on Max Flight’s previous podcast show in iTunes(R) called Podcasting Passion, episode 17.

There are plenty of episodes and posts in the podosphere that deliver advice about what you, as a podcaster, need to know about conducting interviews when you are interviewing other podcasters.

However, this episode is directed for podcasters about interviewing — but not for you, as a podcaster, to interview other podcasters. Rather, it is directed for you, as a podcaster, on being interviewed.

As you will hear in this audio episode, Max Flight goes through several sections about his perspective and planning for being interviewed by another podcaster — with hints and tips — from his experience where he was an interviewee on a podcast show called The Struggling Entrepreneur (episode number 178).

For example, he talks about pre-interview communication, then the actual release for the interviewer and the recording of the interview. He finishes his episode with some suggestions for post-interview actions — such as reviewing the final mp3 from the interviewer and providing head-shot images to the show host.

Also, it is not just luck that provides the formula for success. For podcasters, the path includes hard work, good equipment, total dedication to quality, and the planning and execution of the tasks of starting a business. The path to pursue usually includes the stages of successfully becoming:

– a subject-matter expert; then

– a solution provider who delivers offerings to a target audience; then

– a trusted advisor to a loyal and growing audience; and finally

– a thought leader in the community or field of interest (in this case, podcast consulting and training).

About Max Flight

Max Flight is a success story of a part-time Entrepreneur and hobby-preneur that entered an environment that most people described as “saturated” — especially when his revenue streams started as sponsors and advertisers that had come to him, asking to be on his web site. In 2012, he had several podcast shows that included airplane and flight podcasts, as well as one that was directed to podcasters.

Max Flight - a success story as a podcaster

Max Flight is a mature individual who wanted to complete his career while being a “hobby-preneur” that has a passion for podcasting. He started with his interest in aviation. Since 1996, he had a web site with an aviation directory at the web site called Thirty thousandfeet. He also has a podcast called AirplaneGeeks.com.

Calling himself both an “advanced professional” and an “audio perfectionist,” Max Flight devotes himself to helping others in the area of producing high quality audio podcasts. He himself has good equipment in his home studio, and he provides high-quality audio advice and content to aspiring podcasters.

Although many would have told him time and time again that this market for podcasting services and podcast instruction and podcast education is “saturated,” he proceeded in spite of the warnings, and his is a success story, both in terms of financial success and career success for a post-retirement option.
