Information is money. And there is no doubt about that. Whether you are the one with useful information or you know someone who does, avenues are many. Start with knowing which format you want to and can explore. You can do a solo Podcast, or a panel show or interview someone. Let’s look at what different opportunities await you as a podcast creator:
The Solo Podcast :If there is an interesting topic you have expertise in, you are ready for a Solo Podcast.
The Interview Show :As opposed to just you trying to come up with something to talk about, here you can use a different person’s content each week. It’s probably one of the easiest ways to do a podcast.
The Panel Show :This is a larger set of people doing a podcast. As it sounds, it brings newness and interesting views to your podcast. There’s typically a host and a number of rotating guests each with their own interesting personalities and perspectives.
Conversational/Co-hosted podcast :It is basically a group of people sitting around and having a conversation. If you can find a co-host or even multiple co-hosts who get along easily and create a smooth conversation, it will do wonders. It makes listeners believe they are a part of this great group
Non-Fictional Storytelling :This could be a documentary or a feature telling in audio format. Reading out the timeline of a case event-by-event is an example of non-fictional storytelling
Fictional Storytelling :Dive into the world of your imagination and create something of your own. If you do write, this is for you
Repurposed Content :Easiest way to create content is to start from what you already have. You’ll notice that many video shows, bloggers, vloggers, and content creators will repurpose their shows or existing content into a podcast. You end up reaching out to an all-new audience or open up another avenue of passive consumption for your existing one
Hybrid :This is freedom of podcasting! Mix and match any format you like and make it your own. Do a solo one day, bring a panel the other. Experiment around, take constructive feedback. There’s just nothing to lose, isn’t it?
