5 Things To Include in Your Podcast Intro & Outro (and 1 Thing You SHOULDN'T)

5 Things To Include in Your Podcast Intro & Outro (and 1 Thing You SHOULDN'T)

So you’re ready to start your podcast but … oh, what do you say?! Well, you know generally what you’re going to say. You have ideas for your episodes, but what do you say to get started? And how should you end the podcast?

Listen to a handful of podcasts, especially from different genres, and you’ll find a multitude of different ways to start a show. None of the suggestions below are set in stone, and people are coming in all the time to change how “things have always been done,” and that’s awesome. But for those just starting out and need just a little bit of guidance, here are what I look for in a podcast intro and outro.

What Should You Podcast About?

What Should You Podcast About?

Is this you? Do you want to get behind the microphone, but aren't sure what kind of podcast you want to have?

Do you even need a topic, or can you get behind the microphone and start a podcast about "anything and everything"? The reason I put that in quotes is because plenty of podcasts use that phrase to describe themselves. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, either. I listen to plenty of comedy podcasts that use that exact phrase.

But I will recommend if you're thinking of using a podcast to boost your brand or business, maybe the "anything and everything" route isn't for you.
