Need to write a podcast episode outline? Here are 3 simple steps to get started:
1. Gather the information you need to know.
Before you write anything, you need to know who or what you're writing about. The more specific you are, the more personalized you can make your content.
Here's our suggestions for writing a podcast episode outline:
Podcast name: [name of podcast]
Episode title: [title of episode]
Topic: [e.g. how to write a grant proposal, how to find your purpose, etc.]
Importance to listeners: [e.g. it will help them get funding for their organization, it will help them find meaning in their lives, etc.]
Overview: [e.g. we'll talk about how to write an effective grant proposal, we'll talk about how you can find your purpose by looking at your values and interests, etc.]
Story that illustrates importance: [e.g. a story about someone who got funding for their organization because they wrote an effective grant proposal, a story about someone who found meaning in their life by looking at their values and interests, etc.]
2. Determine the structure of your output.
The structure of your content is just as important as the content itself. The structure of your content is how you're going to arrange the information in the content to make it easier for the readers to read and understand.
Introduce the topic of the episode
Explain why the topic is important to listeners
Provide a brief overview of what will be covered in the episode
Share a story that illustrates the importance of the topic
Provide an example of how to apply what was learned in the episode to real life
