Sharing tea with a fascinating stranger is one of life’s true delights.
While I don’t have tea, Uncle Iroh is correct.
As of this writing, I have interviewed 59 streamers.
My goal is 100.
It’s been an amazing yet challenging experience.
Having a conversation with strangers from the internet in front of x-amount of viewers isn’t easy. That’s why most podcasts don’t last more than 3 months. You really need to love this work.
I’ve spoken to people all around the world from all walks of life.
I mentally and emotionally met them where they are and tried to understand their story. That’s it.
Per month, I host anywhere between 6 to 8 Inside the Streamer Studio shows.
I have a running list of over 45 content creators recommended by other streamers to be featured.
Again, they were recommended not invited.
Sadly some of those people I may never interview.
Searching for a guest isn’t easy.
I do my best to protect the standards of the show.
Here is a list of qualities I seek in my ideal interviewee:
- Do they stream regularly?
- Do they have a community?
- Do they have a story and can they share it?
- Can they give up control?
- Are they willing to be vulnerable?
This is something I’ve learned over the nine months of hosting the show.
I value time, both the guest and my own.
Hopefully, I can add another day of streaming into my schedule but that isn’t possible at the moment unless I make this my full-time job.
Until then keep your DMs open.
If the time comes, I’ll let you know.
[until we vibe again]
