About the Class:

Believe it or not, podcasting involves a lot of guess what? WRITING! Even those seemingly freeform podcasts where performers seem to be ‘speaking off the cuff’ are actually scripted.

As with all forms of entertainment, quality is key. Yes, there are seemingly a gazillion other people all jumping on the podcasting bandwagon, but the competition isn’t as fierce as one might believe.

Too many leap into podcasting without any prior preparation. Part of the prep work is to learn how to script episodes that hook and leave listeners not only wanting more, but eager to share your podcast with family and friends.

If we skip over this critical part, it’s easy to ‘hit a wall’ on content because we lack the proper overview of the show we long to create. This is why there are so many abandoned podcasts with only a handful of episodes. The ‘show’ is all over and the sound quality is as appealing as tuning in to listen to fingernails on a chalkboard.

Plan for success! Unlike Introduction to Podcasting, this class deep dives into the nitty gritty of creating a show and dazzling the listeners.

Writing for Podcasting will cover:

  • What do you want to say?
  • Why do you want to say it?
  • HOW MUCH do you have to say (and how to both break it down and make it go the distance)?
  • Two main categories of podcasts
    • Serialized fiction (radio plays)
    • Genre non-fiction podcasts (true crime, biography, science, news, etc.)
  • Writing for fiction podcasts
  • Writing for non-fiction podcasts
  • Technical aspects of writing a ‘script’
  • How to format a script for an ‘unscripted’ and ‘chatty’ style
  • Show notes, attribution, and blog posts
  • Evolving the script and style
  • Speaking of speaking & what you might need to learn or unlearn
  • And more….

About the Instructor

Cait Reynolds is a USA Today Bestselling Author and lives in Long Beach, California with her very patient husband, a cranky old rescue mutt named Horseradish, and two insane Basenji puppies, one of whom is close to taking over North Korea, and one with existential despair.

She likes history, astronomy, Jack Daniels, jewelry, pasta, and solitude. Not all at the same time. She has worked hard to develop a good relationship with the NSA agents in the van outside her house. They now understand that her Google searches and Amazon wish list are purely for research purposes.

Cait is also the co-host of the ‘divinely funny’ podcast, Drunk Mythology Gals, which severely limits which of her book characters she will be hanging with in the afterlife.

About the Class:

Talk radio, NPR, Audible...and now podcasts. Wireless devices now let us take audio content anywhere we go, and we are now "listening" to our books and content more than ever. Podcasts have become a major part of popular culture, with live tours, fan clubs, merchandise, memes, and even in crime solving!

In some ways, it's like blogging has jumped into the audio format. So Lamb's Laws of Branding still apply, but there are craft and technical differences we need to be aware of when we write, then produce a podcast.

In short, we need to know the business of our business.

This class will cover A LOT, which is why it is THREE HOURS. Remember, a FREE recording of this class comes with your purchase so you can sit and enjoy and go back and study, take notes at your own pace.

This class will cover:

  • AGAIN, THE BASIC PREMISE: WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS PODCAST?
  • What is the goal relevant to your brand/career?
  • Intellectual property: who owns your podcast content?
  • What is a hosting platform, and why you need one
  • What is a podcast network, and what are the benefits?
  • Technical ‘Stuff’: equipment, software, services, and terminology
  • Super cheap (i.e. free) ways to get started 
  • Recording techniques
  • Audio editing & production
  • How to do effective Social Media/Marketing
  • Money (ads & Patreon, merch, etc.)
  • How to attract and score sponsors
  • Patreon (or similar) and how this all works
  • Fees: all that fine print stuff made simple
  • How much can you make? Additional MONETIZATION!
  • And more...
