The rapid pace of digital marketing leaves little time for lunch, let alone time to keep up on industry trends. Our secret weapon for staying in the know on-the-go? Podcasts.
Podcasts are an excellent (and did we mention, free) way to learn about practically anything, including marketing. They’re an excellent way to expand your horizons and learn from experts you wouldn’t normally cross paths with. Plus, podcasts can accompany you anywhere you go – on your commute, at the gym, in the kitchen – so you can tune in when it’s most convenient for you.
The hardest part is deciding what to listen to first. Picking a new podcast can feel like choosing a show to binge watch, so we’ve gone ahead and done the heavy lifting for you. Here are some of the best marketing podcasts in the game. (Trust us, these shows will make you wish you had a longer commute.)
