School of Podcasting - Plan, Launch, Grow and Monetize Your Podcast

Jan 10, 2022

In the microwave society that we live in, most of us are not accustomed to slowing down. As a podcaster, we may associate silence with "Dead Air" which is a phrase from the radio. However, today I'm going to show you that the best answers come after the awkward pause.

The Power of the Dramatic Pause

When you put a pause before or after a point it adds emphasis to that point. 

If you put it before the point, the brain perks up waiting for the next words. 

If you put the pause after your point, it gives the brain a chance to process what was just said.
