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.

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.
