In this shortlist, we handpicked just 3 podcasts you should listen to as a podcaster. If you only have room for 3, these are our top picks.
School of Podcasting
With over 750 episodes, we think this is a pretty good podcast to keep up with. The host, Dave Jackson, is a long-time, self-proclaimed podcast hall-of-famer (we believe it), and has a virtual empire built around the mission of helping people build, launch, and grow their podcasts. He takes the craft seriously, and generous enough to share his knowledge with the world.
For your (almost) daily podcast fix, we recommend the short episodes from Evo Terra (he definitely wins our coolest names list), the host of Podcast Pontifications. These episodes average 6 to 8 minutes, long…so it’s just the right size to get a consistent serving of podcast knowledge.
No list would be complete without some industry news. This is the number one podcast outlet for your daily podcast industry news. Their daily news briefs are just several minutes long, so you’ll want to sign up for their daily newsletter or refer to their show notes to get the full story details.
