5 Marketing & Social Media Podcasts worth subscribing to right now

 

headphonesPodcasts are a great way to learn and keep your brain engaged when you’re doing something boring – exercising, housework, commuting, your day job (kidding!).

But your time doing any of these things is finite and there’s an awful lot out there to listen to. Here’s a rundown of the marketing podcasts I listen to regularly, the kind of content they cover, the average frequency and duration and why I like each of them.

Six Pixels of Separation by Mitch Joel

Primarily covers social media/new media marketing, Mitch also writes for a couple of newspapers and is president of Twist Image, a marketing consultancy. Often alternates between a standard Six Pixels podcast and Media Hacks – though that may change, so subscribe to both, just in case.

Marketing Over Coffee

Christopher S. Penn and John Wall get together once a week early in the morning at a Dunkin’ Donuts for a 25 minute or so discussion of developments in marketing of all kinds from the past week. Everything from marketing 1.0 to search engine optimisation strategies.

Duct Tape Marketing

Usually an ‘interview with an author’ format show of around 30 minutes, a great variety of topics are covered. A new episode appears every 10 days or so.

The BeanCast

A weekly hour long conversation, hosted by Bob Knorpp, with a broad focus and a broad roster of guests, covering everything marketing from advertising, word-of-mouth and social media.

Media Hacks

A 3, 4 or sometimes 5-way chat with the rockstars of social media/new media marketing, Christopher S Penn, Chris Brogan, Mitch Joel, C.C. Chapman and Hugh McGuire and Julien Smith. Episodes come out usually once a fortnight.

Some others worth auditioning:

  1. Many thanks for the double-mention – I am flattered!

    Joseph Jaffe just launched a new video Podcast, JaffeJuice TV, that is also well-worth checking out.

    I am also a huge fan of For Immediate Release: The Hobson and Holtz Report.

  3. Thanks so much for including me in this list! I’m quite humbled considering how great all these other shows are.

    Since you’ve hit my favorite industry shows, let me make a few recos that augment what we do. First two are TWiT and MacBreak Weekly. If you do anything online these shows enhance your technical knowledge and give you perspective on the landscape. And Cranky Geeks (video and audio versions) offers a great mix of tech industry pros that touch on marketing issues frequently.

    Thanks again. Let me know if you have any suggestions for the show.
