Writing a Podcast Script

It is essential to prepare for each episode of your podcast. The best podcast episodes usually sound like casual, free-flowing conversations, but this can take hours of planning! In order to stay on track or run an effective interview with a guest, make sure to gather your thoughts and have topics and information prepared. A great way to achieve this is by creating a podcast script, which might cover the following elements:

  • Standard podcast introduction
  • Welcome message that incorporates an introduction to host(s), guest(s), and topic
