How do you decide if something should stay in your podcast episode? For when I listen to the question I asked, I look for:
1. When did their response start to actually answer the question I asked.
2. Is it a good answer? Does it deliver value?
Today I play some clips of Sean Evans from Hot Ones being interviews by Drew Barrymore the actress turned talk show host.

Avoid the Been There Done That
The guest provides an answer and you have a similar situation that will answer for the second time your question. Was the answer from the guest so unclear that you need to repeat what is essentially the same point? If not, remove your story. The interview is about the guest (not you).
Avoid the Back Story
Sometimes we provide some back story so the guest understands the motivation behind the question. Many times the audience doesn't need to hear the back story. You can edit it out and just leave the part
Don't Forget to Ask a Question?
I find it off that Drew Barrymore often does not ask a question. She says nice things about the guest and just stops.
