As a podcaster, you have a lot of things to take care of to make sure that your show is amazing. You’ll need to do research, and find a topic to discuss, locate an interesting guest, and prepare all of the materials you will discuss. Finding an appropriate studio is just one more thing to put on that list but don’t worry, just browse through Tagvenue’s listings and make your life a whole lot easier. We offer studios like Castaway Studios in Collingwood that are fully equipped with everything a podcaster might need, no matter if you’re a beginner or an experienced podcaster.
Podcasting is one of the most effective ways to get a message across today. People listen to them everywhere they go, whether they are in the gym, in the car, at work, or cooking dinner, they probably have a podcast playing. Considering how accessible and common they are, you’ll need to make sure that yours will stand out. This will take a good bit of organization, not only with the content you wish to create but with finding your guests, as well as marketing and promotion.
The first step of organizing a podcast is to put together a good outline. This is a good way to make sure that you won’t forget any of the points that you wish to cover. You want your outline to be organized in a way that can be easily followed, but also has room for the discussion to follow its own course. This makes the podcast narrative seem more organic, as opposed to simply being read off of a script. Listed in your outline should be the introduction, the talking points that you wish to cover, and a few points you would like to make to wrap the podcast up.
The Introduction: This should include time for introduction music, mentioning any sponsors (if you have them), introducing your guest, and laying out what you will be discussing over the course of your podcast. The introduction should be short and clear and lay out a roadmap for your discussion. This part of your podcast is more likely to follow a script because this is where you would want to read off the credentials of your guest and discuss the sponsor.
The Body: This is the middle of your podcast, where you can get to the meat of your topic. If you are doing the podcast alone, then this is where you elaborate on what was prompted in the introduction. Talk through any questions you may have about the topic at hand. You should get into as much detail as you can in the time frame you give yourself. If you have guests, they should have a fair amount of time to talk and you, as the host, are supposed to guide the conversation.You want to stay curious and explore the topic as deeply as you can, whether it’s by yourself or with a guest or two. Most people listen to podcasts to learn something new, and you are also learning about a given topic when you are talking about it, so why not learn with the audience?
The Conclusion: Here is where you should recap what you just discussed. Remind the audience of why your podcast on a given topic is important and how what you are saying is particularly relevant to moving the discussion forward in general. Tell people about ways in which they can support your content and the social media platforms where people can find you and interact with you in the future. Assuming you have guests, thank them for joining you, mention any sponsors you may have, and let that outro music roll.
Podcasting is a good way to get a message across to a large audience and it all starts with the perfect podcast studio. The perfect studio is different for each podcast depending on things like experience and if you want video to accompany it. Fortunately, Melbourne has plenty to offer in terms of finding a great podcast studio that will fit your needs. Tagvenue can help you find an ideal location for your podcast. We list top notch studios that will have the best gear for you and your podcast, so all you will have to worry about is the content itself.
Many studios will offer hire packages which can be great for beginner podcasters. A two to a three-hour studio session with an engineer can cost between $231 and $330. Casual studio hire will cost between $132 to $165 for a two to three-hour session. For full-day hire, expect to pay around $275 to $350. (All data from Tagvenue.)
An easily accessible studio is always a benefit for any production. Luckily, you can find a range of podcast studios in the centre of the city. Check in the area encompassing Fitzroy, Collingwood, and Carrollton for great options. Also, look to the west for a great selection near the intersection of Langridge Rd and Victoria Parade. Melbourne also offers a few options near the Yarra River around South Wharf.
When hiring a podcast studio, all you need to do is bring the script, everything else the studio should provide. The first and most important piece of equipment is the microphone. Next, double-check that the studio offers good headphones, a mixer and an audio interface. Depending on the budget, you may also want a studio with a preamp or vocal processor to run your vocals, though, for minor effects. Good sound conditioning with audio foam is also essential to ensure that the sound quality is high. Some podcast studios will hire out video equipment if you need to create a visual as well. Check out the studio before you settle on one and ask the management if you need assistance, as some studios will offer bespoke arrangements. Finally, you may need technical assistance. Check with the studio and make sure an audio engineer will be on hand for your session.
