Anastasia shares her insights on engaging with hosts on platforms like LinkedIn to establish connections and familiarity before being booked as a guest. Additionally, she highlights ways for hosts to accommodate potential guests, such as making it easy to determine if their show is a good fit and providing clear descriptions of episodes in Apple Podcasts.

The Power of Reviews: A Key to Authenticity
Reviews on Apple Podcasts play a vital role in attracting potential listeners to a show.

Anastasia believes that everyone has a valuable message to share and that podcast guesting provides a unique opportunity to unleash your voice. She shares her personal experience of sharing her journey as a mother of an adult with type one diabetes on a podcast. Together, Anastasia and Jรผrgen dive into the profound impact that sharing one’s story can have on others, emphasizing that even making a difference to one person matters.
