Podcast Segment Ideas

10 ways to introduce new ideas to your podcast.

Podcast segments are a fantastic opportunity for you as a podcaster. They give you ways in which you can break up the content, bring some fun to the show and experiment with new topics. Here are my top 10 ideas for podcast segments you can start right now.

Live guest call

Fantastic for podcasters doing live shows. Good way to interact with audience as well as show new listeners that there is an existing community they can join.

Random fact

Could you find random fact about your niche? Make it short and swift – good way to break up the content. This is a nice way to provide a bite-size information nuggets to your audience. It shows you are knowledgable in your niche.

Recent review

Do you receive reviews from your clients or listeners? Share one in each episode – awesome way to encourage others to do the same for you without bragging for one in each episode 🙂

Tech news

Is technology relevant to your podcast? New apps, productivity tools, devices come up every single month – this may be a good way to stay current with your industry.


Encourage your audience to ask questions and interact with your show. Answer one or two randomly selected questions in each episode. Keep it to the point though.

Inspirational quote

Everyone loves those! Awesome way to close the show 🙂 I personally would suggest leaving your interpretation to yourself. Nice to leave people with their own thoughts.

Super tool

Anything that can help your listeners in their niche they may have not yet heard of? Share tool ideas and use case scenarios. Nothing better than practical advice!

Time travel

Perfect for podcasters who recorded many episodes already, good way to link back to previous content. Look back at a specific episode and have a short reflection on what has changed since.

Social media fun

Good to start a hashtag and read out messages from people who used it. This should be fun and encouraging to interact.

Book review/recommendation 

Podcast listeners are also heavy book readers (or listeners). This is a good way to affiliate link and discover some interesting reads yourself.
