Finding a great guest is the first hurdle to tackle but before you start cold-calling people you need to think about some important questions: who is my audience? what do they want to know? what will this guest bring to my show? Basically, you need to have a specific purpose for speaking to someone, any guest you invite on your show should enrich the themes you cover. A great start is to discover who the experts in the field you want to cover are, an advanced search on Amazon can help identify who has recently published a study in your field of choice – search by topic, then adjust the search for relevance and publication date.
The next step once you have honed in on a guest to is to imagine them as a ‘story’, thinking about the narrative you could create if they were on your show and how you would tell it to your audience. Research them and have an idea of where you want the discussion to go, drawing up a list of potential questions.
