Doomscrolling is a new-but-real habit in our culture, and it’s not good for us — yet we all fall prey to its siren song of despair. What’s the counter, even sacramental, practice for staying informed and involved without losing hope? Seth and Tsh have thoughts and ideas.

Stephen Hackett is one of my favorite podcasters, and cofounded my favorite podcast network, Relay.fm. Back in 2018, I spoke to his co-founder Myke Hurley about starting podcasts. Since then, Relay has really ramped up their membership program and I though Stephen would be the perfect guy to talk to about putting out tons of content and deciding what to make free, and what to make paid.

In this Jordan Harbinger interview, we go behind the scenes of the incredibly popular and long-running podcast, The Art of Charm.
You’ve heard me say it before. You have seconds, SECONDS, to grab the listener’s attention. Don’t squander it with a boring first question. Picture it. A new listener has found your show. They made it through the
show intro, the
guest intro with the cautious anticipation that you might actually have something interesting for their earballs. But, they’re still just one swipe and click from quitting you and trying someone else on for size. The moment has arrived. Everything is hanging on your first question. Do you have what it takes to keep them interested? Have you got the sauce to make them want to stick around? Here’s a hint. If you ask, ‘How did you get started?’ or simply state, ‘tell us about yourself’ (which is
not even a question!) then you’re dead in the water. Your chances at an explosive first impression as an interviewer have been doused. Don’t worry. I’m here to help. In this episode of Just the Tip, I don’t just give you some gentle (not so gentle) coaxing to abandon the boring and get creative; I give you ways to do it. And, I even demonstrate how interesting this can be. #parentsjustdontunderstand #mymomhasnocluewhatIdo So, if you’re looking to improve your interview skills (and you should be unless you’re freaking Oprah, in which case, holy crap, hit me up Oprah!) then don’t waste another second reading - hit play. In less than 5 minutes, you’ll have a much better way to kick off your interviews and you’ll find out what my mom thinks I do for a living. When you have better questions, you have better conversations. That translates to a better podcast for your listener and for your guest (who is WAAAAY more likely to share something they thought was not the usual, ho-hum snore fest).
