Summarizing is also one of Castmagic’s strong suits, giving podcasters summaries of their podcasts in single blurbs, sections or in key topics written in bullet points. 

Another powerful feature is its ability to auto attribute content to individual speakers, break down their content and wrap-up their quotes and summaries.  

Lastly, it can create ready-to-publish social content for podcasters, perfect for Twitter threads, LinkedIn posts and shortform clips. 

Castmagic is a paid monthly service, but users can avail of a trial version where they are entitled to one free episode.

AItinerary is a new AI-powered itinerary planning service that specializes in helping users create customized travel plans. Like most, it also uses natural language processing (NLP) to create recommendations including activities and destinations while taking into account how long a user’s stay will be. 

Its website houses a straightforward user interface, where users may indicate their destination and dates for travel, before it provides a day-to-day list of things to do, complete with pictures of the activities. Once it generates an itinerary, users may opt to save it or have the service generate another one.  

With no sign-up required, users may try AItinerary for free.  


STORYD is a business-focused AI software that creates data presentations “that leaders love, in seconds.”  

The tool was founded Zack Mazzoncini and Michael Grimm, who also founded Decisive Data, Ignite Intelligence Solutions and Data Advantage, the product’s parent company.  

To use STORYD, users can start by providing it a few sentences about their presentation. From there, STORYD will create and design a presentation in 60 seconds, which users can personalize. Once the presentation is good to go, users can export their own STORYD-made PowerPoint. 

The AI tool also comes with 500 pre-written data storytelling presentation templates, which users can browse by industry or department before copying and customizing the starters for their own unique presentations.  

STORYD also provides scripts complete with titles, headlines and descriptions. Users can add their own ideas to the script, collaborate with co-workers in real-time, add text, lists, images, charts and numbers and brainstorm content ideas.  

Lastly, STORYD houses over 100 layout options and allows users to see a visual preview of each presentation slide to edit the theme, font and color depending on their preference. Existing decks may also be uploaded onto it, where it will extract its theme and font.
