Planning A Podcast

RAS Blog Post Banner

We Want You StoriesI get asked how I go about planning a podcast. People have said that there are so many elements to my show that it must take quite a bit of time to plan, organize and produce each week. The truth is I love doing it, but there is a trick. I do the show in segments.  

A lot of what you hear is pre-recorded and stored so that all I have to do each week is to script the new material, record it, and overlay that with the saved stuff. After you have done this a few times it becomes almost like muscle memory. One of my favorite things to do is to create new segments. Finding the right music bed, sound effects and sound levels is “Geek Out Heaven” for me.

Another job I love to do is weekly art. That might be the most challenging part of the show. Selecting the art to use and doing the layouts so that they look good is something I look forward to each week. You might not know this, but I post a high-res version of the show art on the Facebook page each week for your enjoyment.

Thank You for Asking,
