In addition to editing my own passion podcast (Mandarin Slang Guide) and my platform co-op commercial podcast (English Boom), I also edit other people's podcasts and produce hip tunes for them (such as the cornerstone Mandarin-language pop culture podcast Loud Murmurs).
And here, for your consideration, are some more hip tunes tailored to podcast production.
What news/science/true crime/friendship podcast would be complete without some spritzy pizzicato string bgm?
A less-is-more approach for a background cue that will tickle curiosity without stealing attention
For when it's time to kick back, relax, and cut to the ad break
A high-energy drive for kicking off an episode or finishing strong (unlike Icarus himself)
An experimental 12-tone extravaganza for those of us who prefer our celestial racetracks without guardrails
A casual, unobtrusive groove for in/outros or interstitials
Look, everyone gets silly at times, OK? Sometimes we all just need some bad Twitter discourse puns and way too many kazoo-based Squid Game references.
