There were clips to help set the mood, and inspire. This was OK. Then the music and the voice intro stop SUPER ABRUPTLY, then you changed to a monologue from someone British, and this made me think we were not done with the clips (even though I was just welcomed to the show). I was really expecting to hear the host, but instead, I had a VERY LONG monologue from the British guy, and I thought (because of its length) it might've been the guest from you today.
Then you come on and tell us about his book, and a bunch of general things about the guest (most of which I'm not sure pertained to the show). Why did you bring him on the show? You finally specifically said he was going to teach strategies. Awesome. That should've been the intro. Think of it as a bus, you need to put the sign on the front of the bus so they know where they are going. Then after you announced your guest, you jump to the middle of the interview, then jump back to your thanking me for tuning into the website. That was a pretty bad case of whiplash. By the end, I was just confused.
I would shorten the clips, only use those items from the guest's bio that pertain to the show, and explain what you can expect from the interview. Then introduce him and get to the interview. You only have a few short minutes for to grab people by the head and heart.
