There are so many guides out there for how to start a podcast, and for how to make an audio drama. But there’s a difference between reading an article and hearing the reality behind the process.
Scoring Magic is a podcast by Hug House Productions documenting every step of their process. Seasons 1 and 2 of Scoring Magic follow Anne Baird, Katie Youmans, and Wil Williams as they make their first fiction podcast, VALENCE. They share tips, tricks, and resources, but also what it’s like to work on a massive creative project with friends.
There’s going to be exciting highs, like the moment they decided to work together – but there’s also going to be some very honest lows along the way, all of it leading to the creation of a show they hope you’ll to love!

Influences & Inspirations
Scoring Magic isn’t a conversation podcast; it’s a documentary. We’re inspired by other documentaries with high production value about people embarking on some high-risk, high-reward endeavor in the arts — whether the documentary is in film (like Dior and I or Indie Game: The Movie) or other podcasts (like Radiotopia’s ZigZag or Millennial).
Scoring Magic is one part how-to educational, but it’s also one-part story of three friends taking a risk on something complex and ambitious together.
