This week Stav and Mo continue their journey into the podcast realm, by venturing into Storytelling podcasts, also known as “Sonic Cinema”. Joined by special guest Anthony (@BSbyAKD), the writer, producer and director behind the audio play podcast “Bedtime Stories”. We explore and discuss story writing, music composition to aid storytelling and how sound effects can work to submerge the listener in your audio world, such as kissing your hand to create those steamy love scenes (I guess not so sexy). Anthony talks about his process and explains what it takes to create a scripted podcast drama, including the cost, time and working with voice actors.

This week Stav and Mo are back to have another conversation about all things podcasts. With the launch of the Spotify Podcast Chart, the duo discusses rankings, listener numbers and audience retention. As well as checking where their respective podcasts rank in the charts (Top of the Pops style). What does this mean for podcasters and how do they measure up against the competition? Continuing the Spotify conversation Stav & Mo, explore the implications of video content now being available on the platform, which will include allowing the audience to watch video podcasts. How will this impact YouTube and does this indicate a growing importance for video content within the podcast space? Celebrity podcasts are growing rapidly, but can the celebrities leverage and transfer their fanbase into new podcast consumers? Most recent example is the launch of Michelle Obama’s show about relationships and health issues. To transcribe or not to transcribe? Now that is the question. Transcripts can help a great deal with search engine optimization (SEO) and podcast discovery, but also opens up your content to a wider audience, which may include the deaf or those with a hearing impairment. So, we discuss inclusivity and supporting accessibility within the podcast space.

This week Stav and Mo are joined by some of you favourite podcasters to talk about “solo podcasting”. Recording and preforming a podcast alone, without feeling awkward or having a guest co-host-based podcast, where you are completely reliant on strangers. The very real situation of consciously uncoupling from your co-host, to go it alone. Everyone shares their personal stories of awkward or confrontational guests, what to do with a no-show to the studio. What’s a good a length? We are asking how long should a podcast episode be?
