15. Our FAVORITE Podcasts in Each Format

Last week we talked all about choosing the right episode format for you and your audience. This week we’re diving into the four formats we outlined and laying our some of our favorites (Conan O'Brien Needs A Friend and Dolly Parton's America, to name a few). What you’ll notice is that the formats may be similar, but each show is geared towards the hosts strengths. And what is produced between these shows varies wildly!
