Why You Need Vulnerability + Origin Story Feat. Michael Sharkey

You all already know I am generally anti-guru, but I’m sitting down today with Your Podcast Coach Michael Sharkey, who is truly one of the good ones out there. He’s all about helping you become a better creator - so are you ready to take some next steps for your podcast?

In this episode, Travis and Michael discuss:

  • Michael’s background in radio and why he made the jump to podcasting.
  • What makes podcasting such a powerful medium.
  • The importance of your origin story and which pivotal moments have shaped you.
  • How every story has a hero and a guide, and when crafting your podcast, it’s best to let the audience be the hero and you be their guide.
  • The importance of taking time to recognize and feed your passions.
  • The value of vulnerability and authenticity to inspire your audience to connect with you.
  • Why you should share stories of your struggles and failures with your audience.
  • How you can encourage podcast guests to be vulnerable during interviews.
