Should I Charge My Guest to Appear on My Podcast?

With some bigger shows able to charge a gust to appear on their shows, today I'm going to share why I think this is a bad idea.

1. You need to disclose that the guest is paying you to appear turning your podcast into an infomercial.

2. At first this "extra cash" might get budgeted for a monthly expense and not stay "extra."

3. Then you count on this "extra" cash and then NEED to have guests who pay to appear. This means you will take any guest who is willing to pay.

4. This means the quality of episodes goes down, as your audience starts to tune out.

In the end, I just see this as a slippery slope that ends badly.
