Inside an Apple Top Podcast: 3 Books Proves Interviews Can Be Different
The podcast 3 Books was selected by Apple as a Top Podcast for 2018 and has featured some truly incredible guests: Malcolm Gladwell, Judy Blume, Seth Godin, David Sedaris, Pete Holmes, and more.
BUT … it’s ultimately just another interview show.
So what makes the show special? And what can we learn? Today on 3 Clips, we profile a kindred podcast spirit with 3 Books (notice any similarities? Us neither…) Plus, host Neil Pasricha shares his techniques for warming up guests so they spill the goods, as well as his cold outreach email that he used to land his most famous guest, Judy Blume!
