BEHIND THE SCENES
This is the second time I interviewed Jenna because our first interview lasted about two hours. In the week before that, she interviewed me twice – neither of which became Episode 003 – and each of those interviews lasted two(ish) hours. Sheesh. The first didn't record (my bad, and better me than a real guest) and the second one was just too long. We each got into lifelong chronologies and we realized that that simply doesn't work.
On the other hand, twenty minutes is barely time to cover more than one thing. I've listened to half-hour podcasts with big names who are obviously on a book tour, and even though the guests are great (um, Michael Lewis on Longform) the interviews are unsatisfying.
Since this one we've been coming in at 50 minutes to an hour and we're pretty happy with that. We'd love to change lives with fortune cookie stories but neither of us feels that a podcast-optimized 20 minute interview is the format for us; most of our favorite shows are longer, and they're why we got into this.
