Throwing unique questions at your podcast guest is a clever way to shake things up during an interview. Randomly chipping them in the middle of the show injects some comic relief, inspires deep-revealing aspects of your guest’s character, and puts a smile on your audience’s face.

They can be brainteasers, off-the-wall queries, or simply unusual. Due to the odd nature of such questions, answering them requires genuine and often entertaining answers.

For tips on how to run a smooth interview in general, check out our article on Interviewing the right way. 

Categories And Examples

We have partitioned these questions into different categories to suit the context of your show. Use these examples with discretions. Don’t dish out these questions recklessly before understanding what would appeal to your guest and audience.


Your guest is going to need a minute to answer these ones. The good thing about teasers is there are no wrong answers. Find out your respondent’s unique solutions to some odd situations.

  • Which animal would make the best type of president if an uprising of the animal kingdom happens?
  • What would you do if you found a penguin in the freezer?
  • How would you explain the color orange to a blind person?
  • Why is a tennis ball fuzzy?
  • If you had the impunity to do some shenanigans at your workplace, what would you do?
  • You just got capital punishment, what would be your last meal?
  • How would you describe your job to a child?
  • How many pennies would fit into this room?
  • You’ve been given an elephant and you can’t give it away or put it up for sale. What would you do with it?

Special Personal Question

Explore the weirdest corners of your guest’s mind with these questions. Unique queries like these allow your guest to share information about themselves only close companions could possibly have. Give your audience the high-value content they came for with one of these:

  • Are you more of a hunter or a gardener?
  • Tell me something more motivating about your previous job besides money?
  • What are you known for?
  • What would your pet say about you if we were to ask from them?
  • How would you rate your memory?
  • How lucky are you and why?
  • How would you convince someone to do something they didn’t want to do?


Unique Comic Questions

Charge the air with some humor using these hilarious questions.

  • What would you do for 24-hours if you’re the last person on earth?
  • If you were to pick the one song you’re allowed to listen to for the rest of your life. What would it be?
  • Describe your life using movie titles?
  • A penguin walks into this room and you’re wearing a Mexican hat. What would it say, and why is it here?


You want the interviews on your show to stand out, and offer something new regardless of how many times the guest has been interviewed in the past.
