Best 15 marketing, social and digital podcasts recommended by industry leaders

Staying on top of the latest in the fast-changing marketing industry is a challenge. There isn’t much time to stop and read or watch everything you want to. Podcasts offer a superb alternative to getting your social, digital or marketing fix whilst you carry on doing something else. I listen in the car, on the train, when out for a walk.

This Christmas is a great time to subscribe to the best podcasts, ready for the year ahead. I asked industry leaders from PR, marketing, digital and beyond for their favourite podcasts and got an overwhelming response (interesting how the people at the top of their game, are the ones that listen to a number of podcasts, #justsayin’). Enjoy the list below, in no particular order, and maybe sign up to a few for 2018!
