Treat Your Ears To 19 Of The Best Marketing Podcasts

Some of you may think I’m strange, but reading is one of my favorite hobbies. When I was young, I would hide myself under the covers at bedtime with a flashlight and a book because I just had to finish The Babysitter’s Club, Harry Potter, or The Boxcar Children—whatever was gripping my attention that particular night.

Fast forward 15 years later and I still enjoy reading, but certainly don’t have the extra time to spend hours pouring over books (especially now that I have a toddler!). One day, my husband gave me the idea of listening to books—and it was a great one! With audio books, I can pay attention to my son and maybe get a few things done around the house, but still get to enjoy a book. Then it hit me—I could use that same idea in my work.

It’s vital to stay on top of marketing news and trends. But many of us don’t have an extra hour or two during the workweek to attribute to reading and learning. (I have to admit—this actually isn’t the case for us at Nectafy. Being avid learners is one of our core values, so we have two hours of what we call “skill development” built into our schedules every week. I love it!)

But if you are in the camp of not having time to read about the latest marketing ideas, you can use the same idea my husband gave me—listen to them instead! There are plenty of great marketers that record and distribute their thoughts on marketing into podcasts (digital audio files you can download and listen to on your computer or MP3 player).

But, because there are so many marketing podcasts out there, it’s hard to identify which are the best marketing podcasts—the ones that actually share valuable information.

Well, we’ve done all the hard work for you. We went through hundreds of marketing podcasts and pulled out 19 of the best marketing podcasts online. In this one list, you’ll know how many episodes are currently available of each podcast, how often each submits new episodes, and how to find them online and on iTunes. We’ve ordered them according to their total number of episodes (as of February 18, 2015).

So, without further ado, here are 19 of the best marketing podcasts for your learning (and enjoyment!).
