Think of a moment when you were stopped in your tracks by a story you heard. Perhaps it made you laugh, or cry. Maybe it transported you to a fictional world, or helped you understand the world you're in right now. A good story has the power to make us question our existence, to change our thoughts and beliefs, to drive emotion, and to build empathy. Many cultures have used oral storytelling to pass down information through generations. Humans were clearly designed to tell stories.
When combined with on-demand audio - those everyday stories transform into narrative podcasts. Podcasts offer all the elements of a story that you might tell a friend, although through using engaging hosts and sound design elements, we can elevate those narratives to drive engagement. A great narrative podcast will take you on a journey. Using music and sound effects it will highlight key points. Using silence it will make you stop and think. Knowing how to put this all together is a complex task, but that effort is rewarded by helping you create a deep, personal connection with a listener.
The subscription model
We know businesses want certainty about their podcast production projects so we've developed a fixed-price, monthly model. Choose one of our three plans depending on the type of show you'd like to build, and we'll work with you to create an engaging, regular, narrative listening experience. All plans can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your business.
Our experienced team of journalists and audio engineers will help you craft an engaging podcast for your target audience - you bring the guests and we'll do the rest! (Don't have time to find guests? We can help with that too!)
Yes, we love working on all sorts of podcasts! Our team is particularly skilled at crafting engaging, seasonal, narrative shows. If you'd like to produce a short-run series, we can provide a quote based on your specific requirements.
Narrative podcasts use established documentary storytelling techniques to take listeners on a journey. This isn't just two people sitting behind microphones having a conversation! By using narrative storytelling, we'll mix interviews with music, sound effects, additional narration, and more, to deliver a compelling, sonic audio experience.
Our team is ready to start on your podcast project immediately. It will take around 6-8 weeks from the time you sign your contract, to your first episode going live. Need to launch quicker, or work to a specific schedule? We can do that too.
