How do you know who to choose to host your company podcast? There are two traits FieldCast Chief Content Officer Ted Canova looks for in a great podcast host: Curiosity and a sense of wonder.

While being a great communicator and being knowledgable are important characteristics for a host, the audience will be able to tell if the host isn’t curious about the topic at hand. A great host also isn’t the smartest person in the room. They should be learning from the guest alongside the listener and have a sense of wonder for the information the guest is sharing.

A great host may be someone unexpected. While a leader within your organization may be a good choice, it may be beneficial to think outside the box and choose a person who has genuine curiosity and a sense of wonder.
