A client posed a question in a recent workshop asking if she could use ChatGPT to help with the production notes and episode structure for her upcoming podcast concept.

For today’s installment of AskChatGPT, we decided to test out the concept for a fictional podcast about this very topic:

Here is the first prompt: “How can ChatGPT help me in developing production notes for my podcast?”

Here’s what it had to say:

As an advanced language model, ChatGPT can assist in numerous ways to help you develop production notes for your podcast. Here are some ways you can utilize it:

  • Topic Generation: ChatGPT can help brainstorm potential podcast topics or themes based on your input. It could generate ideas in areas of your interest, or help in expanding your existing concepts.
  • Episode Structure: It can assist you in developing an outline for each episode, including introduction, main points, guest introduction (if applicable), questions for guests, closing remarks, etc.
  • Script Writing: ChatGPT can aid in script development for various podcast segments. You can share your initial thoughts, and it can expand on them to create a detailed script.
  • Research: It can provide quick summaries or briefs on specific topics that you want to cover in your podcast.
  • Question Generation: If you have guests on your show, it can help generate interesting and engaging questions.
  • Advertisement and Sponsor Message Scripts: If you have sponsors, ChatGPT can help you write compelling ad scripts to showcase your sponsors' products or services.
  • Show Notes: ChatGPT can also help you create detailed show notes for your listeners, including a brief description of the episode, timestamps for key topics, and links to resources mentioned in the episode.
  • Social Media Posts: It can draft promotional content for social media to get the word out about your podcast.

Remember, while ChatGPT is a valuable tool, it's always essential to review and edit the content it generates to ensure it aligns with your podcast's tone, style, and message.


Here is the second prompt: “If you were to create a podcast about this topic, what could be the structure for this particular episode?”
