How do I pick a topic for a podcast?
What subjects could you cover in a podcast? There are so many. But which of these options should you go with? The first and most important step in producing a successful podcast is to select an appropriate topic that will appeal to your target audience. It is also the most challenging part because there are simply a lot of different options to pick from.

To tell you the truth, a significant portion of your podcast’s success is going to be determined by the amount of time and consideration you put into selecting the appropriate subject matter for it at the very beginning. Take some time to reflect on the situation, and know that you can count on us for assistance whenever you need it. Make use of this article to assist you in narrowing down your topic, and choose something that will be enjoyable for both you and your listeners.


To stimulate your imagination and get the creative juices flowing, consider asking yourself the following questions:

  • Which concepts excite you and come easily to mind when you think about talking about them?
  • Are there any particular subjects that have piqued your interest in the recent past?
  • Do you constantly find yourself thinking about something that you’d like to talk about with other people?

Know your audience
Find out who your podcast’s audience is first because that’s the step that comes before choosing a topic to talk about on your podcast. By doing so, you will be able to determine whether or not the topics you are considering are relevant to your audience. Who exactly is going to be reading your work? How old are they exactly? Who can tell me what gender they are? Where do they come from? What are their areas of concern? These are the kinds of questions you need to be asking yourself in order to gain a better understanding of the people who are listening to you. When you have a solid grasp of your audience, it will be much easier for you to select a topic that not only speaks to them but also piques their interest. Because of this, you will have a larger audience for your podcast, which will ultimately lead to the podcast’s increased success.

It’s in your niche
Naturally, the subject of your podcast ought to be connected in some way to the field in which you specialize. If at all possible, you should look for a subject that is connected in some way to the business you are in or the specialized field you operate in. Because of this, your podcast will be able to easily fit into your niche, which will make it much simpler to market and promote. You are not required to choose a subject that is immediately connected to your specialized field. You could also pick a subject that falls under the umbrella of your industry as a whole and then figure out how to apply it to a specific subset of that industry. If you have a strong interest in something that is not immediately connected to your line of work, you should make an effort to find a way to incorporate that interest into your niche and make it relevant to your niche. This way, you’ll also be able to share your enthusiasm with others.

You’re excited about it

Does the subject matter that you’ve decided to discuss motivate you to talk about it and get you excited? There is nothing more annoying than listening to a podcaster who sounds like they are merely going through the motions without any passion or enthusiasm. You want to pick a topic that makes you want to talk about it and gives you energy. If you don’t feel passionate about what you’re talking about, how can you possibly expect your audience to feel the same way? If you want to come across as enthusiastic and passionate, you first need to feel excited about the topic you’re talking about. You have to be able to communicate your enthusiasm to the people who are listening to you.

Request comments from your target audience.
Ask for your audience’s feedback before making the decision to officially choose your topic. What are some of the topics that they believe you ought to discuss? What are some of the topics that they are interested in learning more about? There is a possibility that there are topics that you have overlooked, but that your listeners are interested in learning more about. By asking your listeners for feedback, you can learn what kinds of things are occupying the thoughts of your audience. You can do this in conjunction with the launch of your podcast, or you can do it even before you create the podcast.

It is essential to the success of your podcast that you select an appropriate topic to discuss. If you make the incorrect decision, you might have a difficult time expanding your audience and achieving the result you want. The most effective strategy for producing a podcast that will be enjoyed by its audience, falls within the purview of your specialty, piques your interest, and can be approached in a manner that is distinctive from that of other programs is to select the topic carefully.
