Frequently Asked Questions

Basically, a podcast guest contract is a contract you send to your guests before they come on to your podcast. It sets out the terms of your agreement in writing so you’re able to try to enforce it, if/when needed. This DIY Podcast Guest Contract template addresses issues like:

  • How much your guests get paid for appearing on your podcast (i.e., $0)
  • Whether the guest has any input on the final product
  • What happens to the copyright of your show
  • Whether you’re liable if your guest says something or does something bad
  • How guests can/can’t use your branding to promote their episode
  • & so, so much more!

Do you want to make sure guests understand the terms of your podcast? And do you want to prevent guests from requesting payment, asking to review your final show, or from misusing your branding? Then yes! An podcast guest contract makes it super clear…

  • Whether your guests get paid
  • What you do (and what you expect guests to do) to promote the podcast
