Just add a theme tune

Picture of a girl from the shoulders up in a pink and white striped shirt listening to headphones. Her hair overs her eyes and she's upside down against a bright pink background.

One of the things I enjoy most is helping pick out the right music for a new podcast. People have no opinions about the music until you ask them what style, energy, tempo, and mood they want it to be and then EVERYONE has an opinion.

The music you use will start the narrative on the podcast. Minimalist and short might be seen as fashionable, but if your sound design of the podcast isn’t at the highest level, you may appear a bit unprofessional. A pop punk tune will bring energy and your speech needs to live up to the introduction. Go corporate and go home – we can all spot the corporate track.

How much does music matter to you when you’re listening to a podcast? Do you even notice it? Let me know in the comments.
