    I have a guest guide that I send to everyone, but I always make a personal invite. My guide has the show format, and technical info, but written in a fun way. Plus all it has my contact info. I point out to veteran podcasters that they can find that info there if they feel they need it. Otherwise, it’s just old hat. Those new to podcasting have found it really helpful. I’m trying to make everyone feel comfortable, regardless of their experience.

      Carrie – It sounds like you made a great resource for your guests. The dude Elsie was talking about in the episode had all of these instructions on his home page and that coupled with the impersonal invite (to two different email addresses no less) well…yeah you heard how that was received.

    Thank you Elsie & Jess for letting me pull up a seat to the cool girls table. Loved sharing what has helped my team produce 150 episodes in a year. I dig hearing how other people do things to so hit me up if you have some other work flow ideas She Podcasters. You all rock and I am honored to include myself in your ranks.
