How to Make a Book out of a Podcast

You can’t just put up a bunch of rough, unedited transcripts and expect people to read more than first couple of pages.

  • Without context, the interviews won’t flow together
  • People use way more words than are necessary to convey their points.
  • Publishing your work means formatting it as a book.
  • You’ll want to get your guest’s permission before editing their words.

Step 2: Edit a bit at a time, one round at a time

Step 3: Omit surplus words and rearrange content to flow together better
