My favourite business podcasts

I love podcasts. Their audio format means I can consume interesting content while I’m out walking or when cooking. Blog posts and videos are great but nothing lets you learn while multitasking in the same way that podcasts do.

Here are some of my favourite business podcasts about marketing your business, writing well and using social media. Ready?
