Almost anyone can host a podcast show with enough practice and growing the right skillset. For some of the lucky ones, this will come naturally to them, but many of you may struggle with some of the aspects of hosting. If you are finding yourself in this position, you could alleviate a lot of your stress by consulting with an experienced podcast producer who can guide you through the process and help you overcome some of the challenges you might be facing.
If you are choosing an anchor for your podcast, don’t forget about your target audience. Make sure you choose someone your audience will easily trust and relate to. Your host should look and sound like someone they can identify with. A helpful exercise is to imagine the ideal listener of your podcast and pick someone to host the show who most closely resembles that imagined audience persona.
