    Finding the right music and audio identity for your podcast

    Finding the right music and audio identity for your podcast

    Finding the right music for your podcast can be a nightmare. Firstly there is the complex legal situation to navigate, then you have to find the right style, and work out where to use it in your show.
    And there's so much more to think about too.
    We get asked all the time about music, bespoke music and imaging for podcasts so we have brought in a true expert in this field to join us.
    In this month's Pod Almighty, James and Ellie chat to Rob Wills - music producer and owner of Loaded Production Music and 4udio, who make music and imaging for podcasters, radio and TV.
    He gives some really insightful knowledge on the best use of music in podcasts, casts a light on the minefield of music licencing and answers those all-too-common questions like:
    Do I need a licence for using music in my podcast?
    What about 'fair use'?
    What makes good music for my podcast?
    Do sound effects and other noises in podcasts work?

    Does graphic design really matter for a podcast?

    Does graphic design really matter for a podcast?

    You might be forgiven for thinking that as it's audio-based, the graphic design of a podcast isn't all that important.
    But in reality, that's some way from the truth.
    In most cases, the first thing listeners will experience of your show is how it looks, before they hear even a second of it.
    James and Ellie are joined by designer George Lodwick to explore an important area for every podcaster, and get some hints and tips too.
    We look at issues like:
    Is it OK to use Canva for your podcast designs?
    What elements are important on your cover art and episode images?
    Why do you need to think about a sugar cube when considering cover art design?
    Do I need to hire a photographer?
    Does a podcast need a logo or can it actually be hindrance?
    And lots lots more besides - you'll get some interesting ideas you might not have considered.
