Labs Online – Let’s Build a Show






‘Seasonal Applications are now open’ 

now, how are you going to put this into action? 

Let’s acknowledge right off the bat that planning out ten or more weeks of content is daunting, and if we don’t look at these weeks through the lens of a structure than it can be very daunting. This month’s Content Lab was all about taking a step back to allow us to work out how to flesh out an idea, expand on it and take advantage of it. 

The key points that we covered were: 

  • What kind of shows is SYN looking for?
  • How to plan on three different levels
  • Creating regular segments
  • Working out your music direction
  • How to use ‘the net’ 
  • What to do when your show is off air 
  • Some Q&A about Facebook Live

The key thing to take away from this is that this can be applied for both radio shows and podcasts, podcasts in particular need to have killer planning to be successful considering that they don’t necessarily have a hard broadcast or distribution deadline (protip, create this for yourself). 

At the bottom of the page is a PDF of the PowerPoint from the Content Lab which you can read while watching the video from the stream of the lab. If you have any questions about applying for a show, send an email to [email protected]
