Sep 30, 2020

Podcasts have vast potential to distill incredible amounts of knowledge and information into rapid 30-60 minute snippets of information that can be consumed on the go, at the gym, or really anywhere. In today’s always “on” environment – living perpetually connected to worldly happenings, podcasts offer the closest experience to getting in on the action.

As a marketer, it’s important to understand marketing and the various levers you can pull to encourage growth, but it’s also essential to understand our world. To be an effective marketer, it’s important to understand what’s happening worldwide. It can be especially helpful to follow the tech industry and fast-growing startups. It doesn’t matter what industry or field you work in; a thorough grasp of news and events helps inform your decision-making.

Back in 2006, only 22 percent of the adult population in the United States was aware of podcasting. By 2020, this figure had risen to 75 percent. Podcasting is an increasingly popular pastime in the U.S., and there were an estimated 88 million podcast listeners in the country in 2019. Big tech has taken notice, and over the past few years, Spotify has made a strategic push into podcasting to be seen as the audio company instead of just the music streaming company.

So let’s dive into some of our favorite podcasts to keep up with technology, business, and marketing.
