The Best Podcasts for Social Media Marketers

The Best Podcasts for Social Media Marketers

October 25, 2012 7:01 pm 0 comments

I’m testing out how embedding from works and thought I’d share a list of my favorite social media, marketing and business-related podcasts (you can see my other lists here — most are works in progress).

TIP: This list has way more podcasts than you could ever listen to on a regular basis, but I’ve set up my Downcast iPhone app (yes, it’s totally worth the $2 — trust me. I’m a podcast junkie and have tried nearly every tool out there…) to keep a few of the most recent podcasts and about once a week, I go through and add the ones that I’d like to listen to to a new playlist, then just work my way through that playlist each week.

Here’s the list! Dig that cheesy graphic, right? I’m on a Picasa Creative Kit (formerly Picnik) bender. #sorrynotsorry
