Drafting and Understanding Podcast Contracts

Have you ever wondered what would happen if your podcast co-host suddenly decided to up and leave, or if a guest claimed you had no right to use their interview, or perhaps an advertiser didn't pay for the slot you slaved over?

In this episode, I'm going to walk you through the essentials of drafting and understanding the contracts that keep your podcast secure. We'll be talking co-hosts agreements, guest releases, advertiser deals, and platform contracts, ensuring that you have a legal safety net beneath the high-wire act of podcasting.

So, if you've ever felt a twinge of anxiety about the 'what ifs' of your podcasting venture, stay tuned. This episode might just be the legal armor you need to fend off those potential podcasting perils.
