When you produce a script for your podcast, you can have a simple format or complex format.
See examples below.
Audio Production Elements
When producing a podcast, there are various important elements that need to be considered which will add interest and flare:
Top and Bottom Music (Music as a beginning & ending-Usually no more than 15 - 20 seconds)
ID's (Usually spoken - Name of your show/host, etc.)
Bumpers - Refer to piece of audio that gets you in and out of commercials.
Stingers - About 1 second long that have you transition from segments (scenes) of the podcast
Sound Effects - Breaking glass, screeching tires, etc that help reinforce the feel and points you are trying to bring across in your podcast.
Purpose 1 - Background feel
Purpose 2 - Smooth transitions for studio/field (Ex. - Moving from studio to outside street environment).
