Hello all, I am looking for guests and/or co-hosts for my "Serious About Tech!" podcast. This is a show where we get down-and-dirty with technology in news, reviews, and discussions.

Requirements:
Needs to be knowledgeable about technology.
Needs to have quality audio (i.e. usb headset, atr2100); video not required.
This will be a clean podcast.

Here's how I kickstarted getting knowledgeable podcast guests:

1. Find news stories in the press that relate to topics you want on talk about on your show.
2. Identify the experts who are quoted in the articles.
3. Further search the news for those experts to validate their knowledge base.
4. Contact the prospective guests and ask them to come on the podcast.
5. Repeat endlessly

The journalists who write those stories are also good guest candidates.

That looks interesting! Here's another idea that worked for me: The link to a "Guests on the Podcast" page can be part of the initial query to prospective guest. Let's them see who else has been on the show, establishes credibility, and sometimes fosters a bit of competitive motivation. Example: http://www.airplanegeeks.com/guests-on-the-podcast/
