A series of quick questions can spice up the monotony of your show! I suggest writing out a quick questions each day in your show prep. Use these for people calling in with questions, requests or comments. Ask them a quick question and save the call. Once you get 3-4 solid answers, you can use your listener’s audio to setup a call in discussion. Try it after you’ve had a heavy topic on the air for the last 20 min to change up the texture of your show!
