Why Video Podcasts Are Better than Audio Only Podcasts

Updated: Dec 31, 2022

Video Podcasts are better than audio only, there, I said it. Here's why

Video podcasts can be a more engaging and immersive experience for listeners because they offer visual elements in addition to audio. For example, a video podcast might include on-screen graphics, slides, or even live video of the hosts or guests. This can add context and clarity to the content being discussed and can make the podcast more interesting to watch.

Additionally, video podcasts can be more accessible to some listeners because they provide visual cues that can help with understanding and retention of the material. For example, visual aids such as charts or diagrams can be displayed on screen to help explain complex concepts.

Video podcasts can also be more interactive, as they may allow for real-time comments and questions from viewers, or may include live demonstrations or other interactive elements.

Overall, while audio-only podcasts can be enjoyable and informative, video podcasts can provide a more dynamic and engaging experience for listeners.

Personally, I don't launch podcasts without a video component anymore

You should release a podcast without video if you have no intention of finding new listeners organically. Let me tell you why:

1. If we release a podcast without video we lose these things:

50% of the Content

From a properly planned hour-long podcast you should have 10-20 video clips you can post on social media; say goodbye to those

2. Every Other Platform

Get ready to not post on the largest platforms, especially for organic reach - Instagram Reels, TikTok, and YouTube.

3. Human connection

Your listener won't be able to see the guest, and will therefore have a tougher time connecting to what they're saying.

If you don't believe in the power of video from this, then you never will.

You have a large network, or are actively building one, right?

So, it's even more important to maximize the content you make, and to do that you should be posting videos, always.
