A Podcast is a series of spoken word, audio episodes, all focused on a particular topic or theme.
- They can be any length, from a 1 minute news snippet, to a 3 hour in-depth interview.
- They can be any frequency, from daily to monthly
- They can be any format, from simple solo shows up to mammoth, multi-person audio dramas
- They can cover ANY topic, many of which would never make it onto radio
A lot of podcasts are really simple, just a few friends chatting about something that they’re all really passionate about, like movies, literature, business. But some are really polished and super professional, including theme music, sound effects, professional editing and more.
