How to have more authentic interviews

If you invite a guest onto your podcast who is interesting, knowledgeable and successful, the odds are that they have given many interviews before, meaning that they will have ready-made responses and go-to stories for most questions.

To avoid this, you have to somehow surprise them with questions they aren’t asked a lot, questions that can get them off their usual script and that can help to achieve a free-flowing, natural conversation. This will really help your listeners understand the mindset and story of the guest; they will open up more and will give you an interview that is really special. […]
