It depends, according to Mark Des Cotes of Podcast Branding. Des Cotes writes that it depends on how clear your show’s title is. “If a potential listener reads your show’s title and immediately knows what your podcast is about, a tagline is not necessary.”
“However, if a potential listener reads your show’s title and is left wondering what your podcast is about, you may want to provide a tagline for added clarification.”
Des Cotes gives the following example: “If your podcast title is “Good Boy Dog Training,” it’s pretty clear that your show is about training dogs. Therefore a tagline is not required. However, if your show is just called “Good Boy,” it could be about any number of topics. Adding a tagline such as “Helping dog owners create obedient companions.” will help clarify what topic your show covers, dog training.”
