Podcasts for Business Learning

Jun 11, 2009

It took me a while to get used to listening to podcasts, especially while driving, but with long commutes without any radio signal, I've started replacing music to accompany me on the road with free podcasts that I download from iTunes. What I like about podcasts is that you can quickly gain a myriad of perspectives on an industry and learn about new sites, resources and tools.


Here are some of my favorite podcasts, most of course related to my own industry - social media marketing - but all well-produced and informative.


Listener Beware: Don't try to jot down the URLs and other notes while driving. You can always visit the podcast's web page where they usually list links to all resources mentioned.


Managing the Gray - C.C. Chapman is one of my personal podcasting and blogging heros. His shows are heartfelt and thoughtprovoking, touching on the changing ways of marketing and public relations.


Media Driving - Jay Moonah podcasts are musings on all aspects of media and marketing, and they are short, sweet and quite informative.


Six Pixels of Separation - Mitch Joel is an offbeat thinker, writer and podcaster who has interesting perspectives and includes listener commentary in his shows.


Grammar Girl - If you want to improve your grammar or answer some of those grammar questions that have plagued you forever, turn to Mignon Fogarty. She's the master of bite-sized audio podcasts with "quick and dirty tips." Check out her podcast empire of great podcasts (disclaimer: mine included - see below) at Quick and Dirty Tips Network.


Marketing Over Coffee - Christopher Penn and John Wall tend to be rambly but there is so much great information and excellent viewpoints going back and forth that it feels like you're a fly on the wall as they chat over coffee.

 Digital Marketer - This is part of the Quick and Dirty Tips podcast network, and I love being a part of this professional, well-oiled podcasting machine. My podcast covers the intersection of work and technology.


Cybergrrl: Living a 2nd Life (broken link removed) - I'm a huge fan of Second Life for business, keep regular office hours, consult clients, hold events. You can find out about what I do, how I do it and why through this podcast.


Social Media Goodness - This is a new podcast I've started to talk about social media specifically geared toward nonprofit organizations however anyone can listen and benefit, especially if new to social media marketing or on a budget.


Yank and Limey - This is an even newer podcast that I'm doing with Nik Hewitt, one of the virtual team members for my company Conversify. We riff on geographical differences and gender differences as we discuss social media tools and work/life online.
