As many people who know I am a bit of a podcast geek and listen to too many per week. I am often asked what podcasts I would recommend so here are my go to listens.
For Your Aural Pleasures:
- This American Life (same makers as Serial), TAL is just good listening, very good stories and very well produced. – http://feeds.thisamericanlife.org/talpodcast (thanks to Alice Purkiss for the tip off to TAL)
- Death Sex Money (similar to TAL/Serial) really compelling listening often with strong talking points – http://feeds.feedburner.com/deathsexmoney
- Startup Podcast, my recent favourite podcast. Produced very well and follows a new podcast start up, well worth subscribing to – https://soundcloud.com/hearstartup
Tim Ferris – really good and diverse and I always seem like I learn a lot from each podcast – http://feeds.feedburner.com/thetimferrissshow – if you are into social media, business or investing definitely listen to the Chris Sacca episode here.
- This Old Marketing – Content Marketing, really good conversations and challenging points http://pnrmarketing.libsyn.com/rss
- BBC The Bottom Line, covering a wide variety of businesses with great guests speaking openly – http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/radio4/bottomline/rss.xml
- How to start a start up, many have seen these from YouTube, these are 20 lectures from Stanford college – http://howtostartastartup.co/category/podcast/feed/
- The Jay & Farhad Show, two very well respected journalists talk tech, key events, stock, IPO’s and large businesses (it can be dry, witty and a bit hit and miss but give it a few listens and your’ll appreciate) – https://soundcloud.com/jay-yarow
- ProductHunt Radio – if you like to hear about great products, how start ups actually started and where they want to go to and hear insightful q&a’s definitely check out producthunt radio – https://soundcloud.com/product-hunt
Slightly more educational:
If you like something more deep, longer and entertaining Joe Rogan Experience is a great listen, if you do not like swearing or sports sometimes it might not be for you but I personally love it – http://podcasts.joerogan.net/podcasts/.
Check out my favourite recent podcast by Joe Rogan with UFC commentator, ex US Marine Brian Stann – http://podcasts.joerogan.net/podcasts/brian-stann
If you are into sports and sports banter definitely check out The Magic Sponge by Jimmy Bullard, Rob Beckett and special guests – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-magic-sponge/id925021393?mt=2
Don’t judge me before you listen but the new Buzzfeed Internet Explorer podcast is really funny and well worth a listen to over on Soundcloud. Take a listen to Internet Explorer
