Finding a name that encompasses everything you want your show to be about can be intimidating.

You’ve worked hard to develop the idea for your show and you want a title that will intrigue people while also staying on brand.

So, where do you even begin with picking the perfect podcast name?

After working with hundreds of podcasters we’ve discovered what makes a good title and what does not.

We’ve also uncovered a great method for finding what will work for your show.

Let’s dive in.

What Does and Does Not Make A Good Podcast Name

When coming up with the perfect podcast name you do not want to go for something that is cutesy, clever, or rhyming.

The more in-depth you make your title, the harder it is going to be for people to know what your show is about.

On the other hand, what does make a good title is simplicity, clarity and on brand.

People will know what it is and who it is in this way and that is exactly what we want.

The Perfect Podcast Name For Your Show

Weight Loss For Busy Physicians by our client Katrina Ubell.

Who do you think that podcast is for? Who do you think that show is for?

It’s incredibly straightforward.

It isn’t trying to be cute or sell you anything.

It is exactly what it sounds like.

Another one is our client Caleb Brown who created New Planner Podcast.

This is a show for financial planners that are new to the field and are trying to break out into the industry.

The clearer you can be the better it is going to be for everyone.

Your Podcast Name Doesn’t Have To Be Forever


Something to keep in mind when brainstorming names for your show is that it doesn’t have to be forever.

It doesn’t matter if it is immediately or 10 years down the track.

You can change the name of your podcast and you won’t lose any subscribers.

Know that the title that you choose now is only the title for right now.

This should hopefully take off a bit of the pressure for deciding on the perfect podcast name.

In closing…

Your show title should be simple and clear about who the show is for and what it is about.
