Creative and strategic use of music can significantly enhance episode engagement, potentially paving the way for monetization. If your podcast leans towards informational or educational content, you may want to limit or eliminate background music during the verbal parts. This can establish a serious, authoritative tone and enable your audience to concentrate better on the spoken material. However, you could still incorporate intro and outro music as finishing touches, effectively adding charm and character to your podcast. A thoughtful selection of these elements adds a new level of professionalism to your content.
Most podcast-hosting platforms have built-in mechanisms to detect the use of copyrighted music. If copyrighted music is found and the podcast creator can’t provide a license or permission to use the music, their content will be taken down and their account could be suspended. Besides the platforms’ detection systems, copyright holders also actively monitor content and report suspected copyright infringements to the platforms. Typically the ruling is in the favor of the copyright holders.
Another option for podcast creators is to produce their own music. But for most podcast creators, this is not the best use of their time and it can be very costly. That’s why royalty-free music platforms like Slip.stream are a great resource for podcasters.
