But first… What is ChatGPT?
Simply put - ChatGPT is a really smart computer that can talk to people. It can answer questions, write stories, research, and even make jokes! It's like having a brilliant friend who knows many things and can help you whenever you need it.
Should You Use ChatGPT? Is it… Legal?
Firstly, while ChatGPT can generate text that sounds human-like, it is not actually human (duh) and therefore does not have the same level of creativity and critical thinking abilities as humans. So, it is crucial to review and edit the content generated by ChatGPT to ensure that it meets your quality standards and aligns with your voice and values as a podcaster.
But it's also good to note that the content generated by ChatGPT is not protected by copyright. However, if content generated by ChatGPT contains copyrighted material, such as text, images, or audio, then the use of that material may be subject to copyright law. In such cases, you should always obtain the necessary permissions or licenses to use the copyrighted material, even if it was generated by ChatGPT.
So let's jump into it!
Here are some ways ChatGPT can help you produce your podcast more efficiently (plus actual ChatGPT prompts you can use today)!
1. Idea Generation

Now it's time for a truth...
ChatGPT helped me write this article!
I used the prompt, "Can you write a 400-word article about how you can use ChatGPT to produce your podcast and shorten your time spent on your podcast weekly?"
But here's the thing… the writing came back, well, dull. It wasn't using my tone of voice. There were hard-to-read sentences. And so I let ChatGPT's version of this article guide me, but ultimately, everything was strengthened by me.
ChatGPT is like a Google search on steroids. Rather than pulling up thousands of results, ChatGPT can sift through the noise and deliver the answers you seek.
So take what ChatGPT gives you and make it even better. I'm calling it:
