Produce the best content possible by scripting out your shows following these essential tips. Some people choose to fully script entire shows word for word. Whilst others have just a title and improvise the rest. Instead, follow the tips below.
The top podcasts in the world go into the process with a plan before they begin recording. In order to replicate the conversational style of podcasts, you need a great podcast script. There are many ways to go about creating a script, and when it comes to planning your podcasts, scripts are not usually intended to be read verbatim.
What elements do you have that will make it feel consistent for the listener each time? You should do this first so that you are aware of what is coming up in the show and can make your show sound like a cohesive, flowing conversation with great segues.
Try to use guests as a way to break up the conversation, pace, and tone of your shows. Use musical backgrounds known as jingles or music beds or other non-music interludes referred to as stagers, sweeps and IDs to transition between topics. These topic breaks are typically described as bumpers or sweepers, giving your listeners the time they might need to digest the content you just presented.
As each episode is different, they should have their own themes, topics and lengths to set them apart from each other.
