Consider Going Unscripted
( Full Episode, Season: 1 Episode: 24 )
Brittany Brown and Rob Winters Aug 13, 2022 Webpage

Many podcasts are heavily scripted, almost like a television sitcom. There’s nothing wrong with this. It’s not the only approach. You can also have high-level bullet points on your discussion or interview points, or if you’re feeling really wild, go completely unscripted. Some of the best content is produced when you are not reading a script but being present in the moment and speaking as the industry expert you are. Don’t be afraid to make a mistake or trip over your words. You can do some polishing in production but leaving the occasional mistake or stutter in also helps humanize you to the audience, creating a rich listener experience.
