There are so many guides out there for how to make a podcast, and for how to make an audio drama. But there’s a difference between reading an article and hearing the reality behind the process.

Scoring Magic is a podcast by Hug House Productions documenting every step of the process. Scoring Magic follows Anne Baird, Katie Youmans, and Wil Williams as they make their first audio drama. They’ll share tips, tricks, and resources, but also what it’s like to work on a massive creative project with friends.

There’s going to be exciting highs, like the moment they decided to work together–but there’s also going to be some very honest lows along the way. And all of it will lead to an audio drama they hope you’re going to love.

    COMING SOON: Scoring Magic Season 2!

    COMING SOON: Scoring Magic Season 2!

    Last year, we left off having just barely debuted Season 1 of VALENCE. Since then, we've been hard at work on Season 2 . . . or, at least, as hard at work as 2020 has let us be. What has it been like creating in 2020? How have we adjusted? How have we failed and triumphed--and what does that all mean for Hug House, VALENCE, and other creative works up our sleeves?

    We'll talk about all of this and more in Season 2 of Scoring Magic, coming January 2nd, 2021.

    Looking Back

    Season 1 of VALENCE is DONE! We DID IT! But just like when we release the first episode of VALENCE, we feel . . . weird. In this episode of Scoring Magic, we talk wrapping the season, we look back on early episodes of Scoring Magic, and we answer some of your questions!

    F**** Energy

    F**** Energy

    It's a very NSFW one, pals! And also, it's got VALENCE S1E11 spoilers, so make sure you listen to that first! In this episode, I talk to Josh Rubino (Liam) and John Westover (Nico) about conveying "f**k energy." But also, we talk about modern art, control issues, and how people convey their trauma.

    Check out Cornelia Parker's "Mass (Colder Darker Matter)," the art piece discussed in this episode, here:

    These last few episodes of VALENCE have been rough, so we decided to share one of the best things about making VALENCE: our goofy actors. Enjoy this look into our bloopers vault.

Great

Absolutely love how in detail they go into the creation of the podcast. It makes me appreciate Valence so much more.

Super Inspiring

I love knowing how creative people do what they do, especially when it’s tied to specific creative work. This show has so many practical tips, so much honesty, and so much generosity. The hosts talk about specific aspects of creating a new Audio Drama from scratch, and present the lessons they’ve learned along the way as advice to other creators. It’s all super inspiring and often very moving. What a gift.

A How To Guide For Audio Drama

Everyone I know who listens to podcasts regularly dreams of one day creating their own, and that seems doubly true for the audio drama crowd. This show has a relaxed but informative tone that documents the process of putting together an audio drama from the beginning.

Scoring Magic follows the creation of the audio drama podcast Valence as the team works to get that show out into the world, so it will be a real-world workshop where you'll get to hear the end product being discussed. The hosts know their way around podcasting and are putting the things they've learned into one handy feed so you can go back and listen as you work on your own shows.

It's fun, it's informative, and ultimately I think it will make a positive impact on the podcasting community as a whole as everyone will have better tools to make the things we'll all love.
