The IDEA CLUB meets TODAY 4/4/2023

@ideaclub @supporters @Lovelace @AnnieP @ChristiCassidy @Anna @craigconstantine @clevpt @Annetta-iCU365 @CatherineJ

Presenter: (conversation starter) - Catherine Jaeger

Topic: Three’s a crowd - or is it? Hosting and guesting with 3

Why: Why not consider an episode or series with 3 on a podcast? Many shows use a format of a single host with 2 guests or 2 hosts with a single guest. Let’s break this open and discuss the mechanics and magic of when this works and when doesn’t work. Have you done this? Would you consider making it a threesome?

Personally (Catherine Jaeger speaking): I’ve done a threesome (all three of us know each other well) and have considered co-hosting a series. I was part of a spontaneous threesome experiment during the podcast interview practice group (spoiler: it didn’t go well). I have fun listening to podcasts to sense what’s working and what’s now… and now I invite you to join me on this journey!


For extra credit, here are some example threesome shows that we could reflect on:

  1. Brene Brown has a podcast roundtable with Tim Ferris and Dax Shepard (she calls it a roundtable - I like that!)

Brené Brown

It’s a podcasters’ roundtable! In this episode, Tim Ferriss, Dax Shepard, and I talk about everything from preparing for podcasts, parenting, and ping pong, to addiction, trauma, and the long, winding road to healing and wholeness.

Idea Club Followup - 4/4/2023

Deepest apologies to @Annetta-iCU365 who found herself in the cold - as did 3 others. Thanks to a phone call from Annie P - 9 of us quickly ended up in the same place but somehow we failed to bring in Annetta. So heartbreaking - Argh!

Catherine Jaeger directed our attention by posting, in advance, the three Podcasts listed ABOVE in her original announcement. Then during the meeting, Catherine skillfully pop-corned us through comments from all 9 in attendance, summed us up and closed us down precisely after 30 minutes. It was a masterpiece!

Reminders: We meet for 30 minutes at the same time on the FIRST Tuesday of EVERY MONTH so our next meeting is:
This is a unique dedicated ZOOM link for The Idea Club - also the SAME every month.

These are some of the ADDITIONAL Podcasts mentioned today!

GOOD NEWS! Most of us in attendance are available to host an Idea Club Topic in the foreseeable future. Stay tuned for more on that. :star_struck:
