As a podcast host myself I know the time that goes into creating a podcast episode!
Let’s play a scenario – You just had a great interview, and are ready to put out a killer episode–wait. Ask yourself, how would I feel if -a guest emailed me tomorrow to say that they decided they didn’t want the episode to air after all, or heck – after they listened to themselves and now have had a change of heart (we all know how it feels to hear yourself talk).
Now you’re wondering, should I get a release from my guests?
People (you included) have rights to their name, likeness, voice, and personal details. While asking guests to join you on your podcast may feel casual, by having them on your podcast, you are using some of those rights – and that means you should have them sign a release. A release ensures that you have all of the rights that you need to do what you want with that content – no take-backs.
Protect the longevity of your efforts, with a no-hassle release. I will even give you tips to build this release into your invite to prevent any resistance from you + them!
3 Easy Steps to be Legally Aligned:
- Access your legal vault, the home of your contract template purchase (plus any of its updates).
- Watch the video tutorial and fill out your contract template in minutes, while gaining the understanding of what it all means. Because with knowledge comes confidence.
- Use the step-by-step checklist in our implementation guide. You’ll never have to wonder if you filled out the contract template correctly or second guess what’s next as you implement the contract seamlessly into your business.
Stay in the know. Whenever there are updates to a contract template you have purchased, you will get an email and have instant access via your legal vault.
- Set expectations of how + when the interview will be captured.
- Receive permission to use their audio, video, name, headshot, and bio to publish and promote the podcast episode.
- Make it clear that you do not have to receive their approval on the podcast episode or marketing material before it is published
- As I mentioned this Implementation Guide will include non-hassle tips to build this into your current process for inviting or scheduled podcast guests, so you don’t skip a beat becoming legally aligned.
