The Beancast

PNR – This Old Marketing

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.

Notable episodes: The episode with Tamara Gaffney from Adobe, and the one with Steve Rayson on the content types that get most shared on social.


The #AskGaryVee Show

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.
