Just a heads up and I will re-post this in January when we open up bookings again. On that note right now we are not taking guest applications as we are booked into February. Once we go that far out we stop taking apps and wait a while. But on January 1st we will re-open the application.
I would like to get some folks on about subjects we have not covered in the past. Don’t let the word expert intimidate you if you know about any of this stuff by the way. An expert in my eyes can have a 60 minute fun conversation about a topic they are well informed about. If that is you submit yourself. Here are some subjects I want to cover in 2014.
- Mushroom Cultivation
- Earth Contact Home Construction (yes I know Paul Wheaton and WOFATI, he has an open door guys, I want other views too)
- Living Off Grid in Hot Climates
- Creating Herbal Preparations (I do a lot on herbs but would love someone who can go in depth on a few preparations, their uses, etc)
- Cheese Making
By the 1st I will think of more but this should get the community juices flowing.
How You Can Help
- Absolutely DO tell me other niches, skills, topics to add to this list especially ones we have not covered much.
- Absolutely DON’T say, ______ would be great for that topic. Please if you know someone go tell them about us and send them the link to our guest form.
The reason for two is simple, I CAN NOT explain why, I really can’t but when a guest comes from an audience referral vs. our solicitation IT IS ALWAYS and I MEAN ALWAYS a better interview. If you doubt me the following regulars came to us that way,
- Chef Keith Snow
- Steven Harris
- Doc Bones and Nurse Amy
Now there are times when I reach out to someone it is usually a coincidence that leads me to them, two examples were Gary Collins and the great Paul Wheaton, so I will continue to “recruit”, I am just asking you guys to do it as well.
I think it works like this, I go hey I am Jack, I have a show, yadda yadda yadda, a bunch of people listen, etc. If they say yes they are motivated mostly by exposure.
A listener says hey ______ I love what you do and have been following you for a long time, I also really like this guy Jack Spirko. He has a show called The Survival Podcast and I would love to hear you on it. You can ask to be a guest at this link http://www.thesurvivalpodcast.com/guest-submission , please consider coming on Jack’s show. He is very welcoming to new guests and I and others would love to hear you and Jack discuss _______.
Now think about that from the guest’s perspective.
Anyway if you or someone you know can discuss any of the above topics for about an hour please fill out or send them the link to the form in January. Or if you have any topics you want us to add to the list let us know.
This is an effort to broaden our topics in 2014 and continue to make the show more valuable for all of you guys.
