David Hooper published an episode where he gives the “behind the scenes” view of his interview with Dolly Parton on his Build a Big Podcast show.

I've known Dave for years and respect his insights and snarkiness, and when I heard this episode, I felt compelled to tell everyone about it. That triggered me. Why exactly was I sharing this? Today I brought Dave on as I dissected his episode and got his comments.

What I Liked About This Episode

Dave would increase the pressure by talking about the stakes of the situation. There was also a lot of “I wonder what happens next,” which is always great.

At one point, he launched into a story that somewhat relieved the pressure and helped establish Dave's street credibility (he has interviewed a TON of people on his Music Business Radio show).

You will also hear Dave be vulnerable as he shares his thoughts on the interview with Dolly.  Ultimately, you can't wait to hear how the interview goes. Did it happen? Was it good? Did Dave cry? Did he blow it? You can hear the uninterrupted full version of the episode at https://podcast.bigpodcast.com/audio/9113/571115
