A Consent & Release Agreement for Podcast Guests should be used anytime you’re inviting a guest to be a part of your podcast.
Depending on the expectation, the guest might just be doing an interview … but in some cases, they might also be providing a handout or special download for your listeners. This is one reason you want a consent and release agreement. The other reason is because you’re likely going to be featuring their name, image, and bio on your website, on social media, or on promotional materials.
Here’s why it’s important to get this agreement signed:
- It protects you from being sued if a guest were to come back and say you didn’t have permission to use their name, image, bio, handouts, etc.
- Your guest knows up front that they’re not being compensated for this.
This agreement is very easy to customize because there’s not a lot to it. Ready to get started? Let’s go!
