Podcast Script Generator

Crafting compelling podcast scripts is a breeze with Descript's podcast script generator. Create a podcast script or outline, complete with an intro, talking points, interview questions, and more. Now you can stop staring at a blank page and focus on delivering engaging content instead.

How to generate a podcast script or outline in seconds

Step 1

Tell AI what your podcast script is about

In a new project in Descript, you’ll see a text editor where you’ll be writing your podcast script. Click Ask AI to Write and choose whether you want it to write a script, outline a script, or brainstorm ideas with you. You’ll get a prompt template you can edit to include your topic, style, audience, or other details—or you can write your own custom prompt. Hit enter when you’re done and let AI generate your script draft in seconds.

Step 2

Give the AI feedback to refine your script

Review the AI-generated script and make any edits or adjustments you want. Add more talking points, rewrite sections in your own words, and refine the outline structure. It's your podcast, so ensure the script aligns with your vision. As always, AI gives you a strong starting point you can then customize.

Step 3

Record your script or get AI to read it back

With your script finalized, you can record it immediately by clicking the Record icon. Or you can add an ‘@’ to start assigning it to an AI voice or voice clone. Both options allow you to edit the text to edit the audio. From there you can go to Publish to export your script as a transcript, or  produce the rest of your podcast episode in Descript and publish it directly to platforms like YouTube or Spotify.
