Podcast Analysis

In today’s video I assess the podcast Radio Lab, ep.8 (Aug, 3 2017) according to the following:
  • 1. Audience: Why does the podcast hold my attention and keep me listening? Does the podcast cover a topic I am especially interested in and in a way that other news outlets or sources do not or cannot? Is the podcast something that my friends and I listen to? Does the podcast you chose provide a model for how to appeal to an audience?
  • 2. Structure: What is the overall structure of the podcast. What sorts of segments make up the overall podcast? How are those segments arranged? Do the hosts announce the transition from one segment to the next? Why is the overall structure effective? Does the podcast provide a structural model?
  • 3. Segments: What sorts of segments are used? Does the podcast provide a model for segment order?
  • 4. Audio: what audio cues are used in the podcast? Are the cues consistent throughout? Is the volume consistent across the whole podcast? Does the podcast provide a model for the types of audio cues? 
  • 5. Conclusion: How does the podcast concludes? Do hosts announce what to expect on the podcast to follow? Is there outgoing audio cues or music? Does the podcast provide a model for how to conclude?
