There is a massive opportunity right now.
And that’s to start an interview-based podcast.
Because you can get direct one-on-one access to some of the most high-level people in the world.
I’m amazed how many individuals will reply to my DMs, respond to my messages, and allow me to interview them.
All because I simply asked.
“Oh, it’s because you’ve got an audience.”
Go check out Pod of Jake. He’s interviewed Vitalik Buterin, Anthony Pompliano, Keith Rabois, 3LAU, Balaji Srinivasan, Jerzy Gregorek, and Mayor Francis Suarez.
He started in July 2020… with no following… while anonymous.
Of course, it’s not all sunshines and roses.
It’s work to prep for shows, come up with interesting questions, be able to maintain a dialogue (all things I’m working on every day), all while keeping a consistent posting schedule. You’ll reach out and hear far more no’s or no responses than you will yes’s. But that’s okay. Chalk it up to the game.
Is it worth it?
So far, I’ve connected with my childhood hero (Gary Vaynerchuk) as well as some of my favorite authors (Gay Hendricks, Kamal Ravikant), entrepreneurs (Jack Butcher, Jordan Syatt), and athletes (Hellah Sidibe, John Crawley).
Would it have happened without the podcast?
So if you’ve been thinking about starting a podcast…
Let this be a sign that it might be time to jump in.
