ABSTRACT: Here at Ideas on Fire, we have a blast producing the Imagine Otherwise podcast which features people and projects bridging art, activism, and academia to build better worlds. Podcasts like this are a fantastic way for authors, artists, and cultural workers to get the word out about their work, market their books, and connect with new audiences. They’re also a great opportunity for podcast hosts to introduce their audiences to new people and projects. Through Imagine Otherwise, we’ve gotten to interview some amazing folks about their books, films, organizations, and performances. In the process, we’ve also had a lot of questions from guests and listeners about how to be a good podcast guest or how to best prepare for a podcast interview. Below are some of the tips we recommend.
