Step by step instructions

  1. Go through Lessons 1-6 and make notes of all the steps you’ll need to go through in the process of recording a podcast.
  2. Make your own plan of creating a podcast by answering the following questions:
  • How many speakers are there in your podcast (just you, another speaker(s)?
  • Where are you going to record a podcast?
  • What equipment do you need and how will you get it?
  • How long is your podcast? 10, 15, 20, 25 minutes or more?
  • What is the topic of your podcast? (narrating a recipe, storytelling about your favourite dish, interview with a chef, interview with your family members who inspired you to cook and share recipes, etc.)
  • What is the theme of your episode and what message you want to pass to your audience?
  • Who is your audience (just your family and friends, colleagues, or wider audience)?
  • What is the musical intro of your podcast?
  • Make a clear structure of your podcast by following the three act structure.
  • Brainstorm ideas for your podcast artwork.

3. If you feel comfortable and prepared enough, you can record the podcast and publish it using Buzzsprouts. Good luck!
