We have two general types of guests on the podcast. First are featured guests, typically researchers, authors, or scientists, discussing particular research. We also have Man on the Street interviews for every day people. Learn more about Man on the Street interviews here. Continue reading for featured guest appearances.
I’m looking for people that are a good fit for the podcast that bring relevant knowledge, can dive deep, and have a serious, thoughtful discussion – and still keep it fun and interesting.
I’m only asking for about 30-40 minutes of your time, weekdays, evenings, weekends, whatever works for you.
Great guests are authors and researchers as well as faith and community leaders with published materials connecting in some way to the outrage industry, outrage porn, angertainment, and associated effects.
A perfect guest…
- Is willing to deep dive into topics with grace, dignity, civility, and humor
- Has a topic they’re passionate about sharing with an audience
- Has a topic of interest to the listeners
- Can cover the material in a clear and easy to digest manner
It’s just a conversation
I prefer a conversational style, somewhat informal, with few rules. I’m not a professional TV or radio personality. I’m just a curious person speaking to an audience of curious people. You don’t need to be “media trained” or restrict your answers to two-minutes to be on my show. We don’t sell stuff. We educate and inform.

The following Conversation Agreements come from Living Room Conversations.
Be curious and listen to understand.
Conversation is as much about listening as it is about talking. You might enjoy exploring how others’ experiences have shaped their values and perspectives.
Show respect and suspend judgment.
People tend to judge one another. Setting judgment aside opens you up to learning from others and makes them feel respected and appreciated. Try to truly listen, without interruption or crosstalk.
Note any common ground as well as any differences.
Look for areas of agreement or shared values that may arise and take an interest in the differing beliefs and opinions of others.
Be authentic and welcome that from others.
Share what’s important to you. Speak from your experience. Be considerate of others who are doing the same.
Be purposeful and to the point.
Do your best to keep your comments concise and relevant to the question you are answering. Be conscious of sharing airtime with other participants.
