In this episode of The Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks with Christine McAlister, The Queen of Podcast Guesting and founder of Life with Passion.
Christine shares her passion for helping people gain an entry point through podcast guesting. Having been in the media since 1999, she says these kinds of conversations — real stories of healing and growth — are what make podcasting so powerful. It has become an intimate tool for communicating and letting people know who you are. With interest and portability combined, followed by less clutter, less scrolling, and very different ads – podcasting is unlike anything she's seen before.
Christine believes that to make a great podcast guest, you need to spark a conversation in a way that builds the host's audience trust. She says authenticity is one of the ways to get fans to like you. Her advice to all impact-focused podcasters is to leverage their platform for networking. To stand out, she recommends avoiding focusing too much on bookings, but on what comes after the interview and beyond.
