What Does a Podcast Producer Do?

Every great podcast needs two key roles to be filled

  1. someone to be on the podcast (“the host”) and
  2. someone to manage the podcast (“the producer”)

The problem is that most podcasters start their podcast because they want to wear hat #1, but they’re not being quite prepared for the time involved in wearing hat #2.

The hosting is fun and energising, but the producing side of it is time-consuming and tedious. And this is a big problem when, before too long, your podcast becomes inconsistent and frustrating, and you completely lose your mojo for podcasting.

But there’s some good news. It doesn’t have to be this way!

While it’s very HARD for you to outsource the hosting role, it’s actually quite EASY for you to outsource the producer role.

So what exactly does a podcast producer do?

Long story short, they make sure your podcast gets released, and that it stands out and gets the attention it deserves

Of course, an absolute must for your podcast is high-quality clarity and high-quality content. BUT there are so many other crucial steps to take and boxes to tick which your producer needs to be all over. 

At Oh My Pod, that sort of stuff is our bread and butter. Here are some of the key tasks that your producer needs to manage (and which we can help you out with if you’re interested).

Episode Production

You’ve recorded a great episode! Let us take care of the rest. We’ll edit the episode for you and upload it. We will also provide musical intros and outros to grab the listener’s attention from the very beginning!

Podcast Branding

We want to make sure the look and feel of your podcast connects with your vision and connects with the right people. You’ll get a snazzy podcast logo and cover art, imagery for your social media, and branded show templates and documents to keep everything organised and professional.

We’ll summarise your episode content into show notes. That way people will be able to find your podcast quicker and easier. We’ll include key phrases whilst maintaining the right tone in order to optimise search engine results!
