Podcasting Design Framework

The podcasts have been carefully designed and planned using a framework adapted from IMPALA's Podcasting Development Model:

The framework guides the user to consider 5 key design aspects:

  • Sections
  • Key messages
  • Purpose
  • Duration
  • Producer(s) of each section

The table below shows the planned structure and content of a psychology podcast.
