Matt also shares his formula for improvement, and advice that applies to podcasting, communication, and life in general. HIGHLIGHTS Podcasting is best done with a team Podcasts need to be both structured and spontaneous Asking good questions is the hallmark of confidence There is no one right way to communicate Repetition, reflection, and feedback QUOTES Matt on encountering unfamiliar themes during an interview: "I feel like I am representing all the listeners and if I don't understand it there's a chance that many others don't understand it. And so I just ask questions and try to paraphrase and hone what the person is saying until we all get an understanding." Matt on the fine balance between structure and free-flow in podcasting: "You need to have enough structure and framework to allow you to be creative and play, but still accomplish your goals. That's a fine balance and everybody's going to find that differently, but the goal is not the extremes where it's just complete free-flow or it's just overly structured." Matt's formula for improvement: "You have to do it. You have to practice. You have to reflect on what's working and not working. And then you have to seek feedback. And it is through those three things that we improve our communication and many other aspects of our lives."
