They also regularly interview big ballers like Seth Godin, Ann Handley, Ted Schilowitz, and Chris Brogan. Very engaging and conversational style.

Bob Knorpp, the host, discusses the latest industry news and trends with his guests. It’s more of a roundtable conversation with ‘a healthy dose of perspective’. The Beancast is one of my favourite marketing news roundup podcasts. Only the recent podcasts are available on iTunes, but all 400+ episodes are available from their website.

Notable episodes: Hard to point out a few, but the 404th episode titled ‘Debranding Branding’ has a lot of food for thought, and I found episode 408 titled ‘Unidentified White Liquid’ to be very interesting.

When it comes to content marketing, Joe offers the best actionable advice out there. Through This Old Marketing Joe talks on how to use content to attract and retain customers. Each of their 100+ episodes follow a specific format- Joe and his co-host Robert Rose discuss what’s new in the Content marketing world, then rant about the headlines and trends. Next is my favorite part- they present an example of an ‘old marketing technique’ and what you can learn from it.

They invite social media gurus from big brands every week, and discuss trends and strategies that big brands use to reach millions on social platforms. I like Social Pros even more than Jay’s other podcast- Jay Today, as it’s simply more engaging, and filled with insights. Jay and Adam are witty and educational at the same time.

The Solopreneur Hour, which happens to be another one of my favourites, is hosted by Michael O’Neal. What I like most about this podcast is that it’s as motivational as it is informative, and is ideal for ‘proudly unemployable solopreneurs’ as Michael puts it. He regularly brings on successful entrepreneurs and delves into their stories. All entrepreneurs that he interview are normal folks like you and me who left their day jobs to be successful freelancers and solopreneurs, making the advice highly relatable. He also does a free coaching Friday where he answers questions posed by his audience in his Proudly Unemployable Facebook group.

Notable episodes: Episode 401 with Willem Van Zyl and the very motivational episode with P.J. Dixon (episode 313).

Although all episodes aren’t about productivity hacking, Stephen lays down some great ways to improve your work life, and get more work done everyday.
