Knowing how to pitch a potential podcast guest can make a big difference in you landing the interviews with those who you admire and them declining your invitation and going somewhere else.

Today's session provides you with everything you need to know to become a master pitcher.

In this episode, I share everything I've done (including my word-for-word email template) to successfully land interviews with Grammy Award-winning artists, New York Times bestselling authors, top entrepreneurs, and contemporary music stars.

With my podcasts and virtual summit combined, I've done well over 200 interviews and I'll teach you everything you'll need to know and what to leverage even if you're just getting started.

Wondering who I've interviewed? How about Kool & The Gang's Robert “Kool” Bell, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dave Holland, Jamie Cullum, Natalie Sisson, Michael Port, Pat Flynn and John Lee Dumas.

I get my fair share of pitches from podcasters who want to interview me too, so I'm also going to tell you what to avoid so that you know how to pitch any guest you want, regardless of how big they are.
