Addressing sensitive subjects on the pod

Hey folks!

As some of you might know, I have my own little pod that I've been growing which features a ton of folks: drag queens, comics, activists, podcasters, etc.

So far my pods have been pretty straightforward interviews with fun games mixed in...

I booked a legendary performer, who also owns one of the biggest drag clubs in SF for my pod. I posted on FB if anyone had any questions for this performer/club owner & all the sudden the thread blew up in flames from disgruntled queens airing out dirty laundry. The person in question reached out privately and asked me to delete the post. I did cause I don't want them to cancel the pod! lol

Do I bring up the drama? Skip it? This person is very influential and not a bridge I want to burn... but.... ack!!!!!

Are these Drag Queens or DRAMA Queens???

Well that sucks. I haven't heard the ep but here's my two cents. Doug Stanhope has a podcast. He's a total drunk, who is friends with big celebrities like Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp. He constantly has to censor himself because he's told coke stories and such - things these people want kept private. For being a drunk, he's pretty good at stopping guest questions with, "I can't talk about that - period."

He also has what he calls "Buyer's Remorse." This is where if the guest realizes they said something too sensitive/ may create legal issues/ etc he has his podcast engineer edit the offensive sound bites out.

Look. Ya got a podcast. A pod, (I mean if it's any good) it's gonna be more than a sound board for promotion. It's gonna have sensitive/private/ engaging stories. DO NOT ALLOW some guest make you second guess YOUR show. Be a good host. Honor their request. If something needs removed - fine. Removing an entire ep is offensive. That's YOUR time. It's YOUR show.

Doesn't Chemda have a list of do's and don'ts for guests? Like talk into mic and whatnot? Maybe write up a little something. Make it clear. This is a podcast where what you say being recorded and broadcast. Any regrets/ buyer's remorse will be honored. That sort of thing.

Good luck with your pod. This sort of thing happens. Don't take it to heart.

You show you're a good person, and then you ask them about the comments you saw. I'd even address that you removed the thread for them. Whatever the common theme was, ask why that seems to be out there. Offer up an excuse: "Are these haters insecure?"

Do not ask to bring this up ahead of time because obviously they're already a fan of certain censorship.
