If you want to have a show that’s consistently relevant, fun, and different, then everyone needs to let go of the status quo and the same ol’, same ol’. Think about it: if you’re in a long-term relationship and you continually do the same old things—same dates, same meals, same vacations—it gets boring fast. And listeners might leave to check out another show. Same is true with listeners. Yes, trying different and daring things that serve the plot can be uncomfortable (at first!). But I get the talent to lean into the discomfort, and I show them how exciting and fulfilling getting out of their comfort zone can be.
