There are a lot of great podcasts that use this format to create interesting, useful content for their audience. Think recording studio and voice-overs
From a technical perspective, this is also an easy podcast to pull off. But it’s harder than you think to carry a microphone on your own. It takes a special kind of person to ad-lib a monologue for any length of time without making a fool of themselves.
Of course, you don’t have to ad lib. You can write it all out, which many podcasters do. The trick, then, is to write and read the script as if you are speaking conversationally. In general, podcasts are not like audio books. Listeners aren’t expecting to hear someone read. They want to hear someone talk. Think recording studio and voice-overs
Challenges aside, there are some real advantages to this format. The responsibility for being interesting is distributed throughout the panel. If the energy between the panel members is strong, listening to a conversation between some opinionated people is always entertaining. Think podcast, voice-overs, recording studio
Nonfiction narrative, or creative non-fiction is a big world. In the literary world, I think of authors like Annie Dillard, Anne Lamott, or even Bill Bryson. They write about their own experiences and observations in life. They are essayists, and in Bryson’s case, a humorist. But in my itunes library, this podcast form is dominated by journalism. And when it comes to audio journalism and story-telling, NPR is king. Think recording studio and voice-overs.
There are not a lot of people producing straight up fiction in podcast form.
I’m not sure why this is, but I can only assume that it simply hasn’t caught on among fiction writers. But this will change. I’ll bet you a bag of Augies beans that as podcasting becomes more mainstream, we’ll see more fiction writers publishing their stories as series-based podcasts. Think recording studio and voice-overs
What kind of content are you creating that could easily be re-purposed and distributed to a wider audience as a podcast? Sermons, seminars, workshops, and even plays come to mind as possibilities. Think recording studio and voice-overs.
