35 Marketing & Social Media Podcasts Any Professional Should Listen To

We’ve said it before and we’re saying it again—working in digital marketing isn’t easy.

A day—scratch that—an hour doesn’t go by without a new release, feature, algorithm change that affect your strategies and campaigns. Keeping up is hard and remaining a relevant expert in this field is a close to an impossible challenge.

A while back we decided to help with a piece featuring the top social media influencers to follow. Now we’re thinking social feeds and blogs aren’t always enough to stay up to date. Scrolling is difficult and it takes time. Listening, however, can be done while multitasking. That’s why I love podcasts—they’re such a great way to learn on-the-go.

But what’s a great habit if you don’t share? After years of listening to podcasts, I came prepared with a list of 35 podcasts a marketer should listen to. Don’t feel intimidated, you don’t have to love them all—try them out and see what fits.

I’ll make it easier for you to find and jump directly to the podcasts you’re most interested in
