It’s said that most good writers are also ardent readers. It’s also said that you can learn a lot about a person by the books they read.
The same can be said for podcasters. Ever wonder what the rest of us are listening to? So, I grabbed my iPod Touch and started making a list.
Going from top to bottom, these are the podcasts I’m listening to as I’m running around town.
Campground Pirate Radio
Yeah, I listen to my own show. I love rockabilly, psychobilly, punk, ska and hot rod surf.
Duct Tape Marketing
John Jantsch is da schizzle when it comes to small business marketing. Seriously, if you can’t find a couple of takeaways and to-do’s from each of his shows then you’re Seth Godin.
Escape from Cubicle Nation
Other than fantastic advice on how to transition from the “day job” to your own business, Pamela Slim is a motivator first and foremost.
The Home Recording Show
Ryan, Jon and Jesse are three seasoned audio recording guys who make their livings, either in part or in total, from running a recording studio out of their homes. It’s not really a show to learn about all the new gear out there, it’s a podcast that shows you how to make the best of what gear you already have.
Internet Marketing for Smart People
A kinda weekly show created by the folks who bring you copyblogger.com. Hosted by Robert Bruce with occasional appearances by Copybloggers Brian Clark and Sonia Simone. It’s a no-BS approach to marketing on the internet.
Podcast Answer Man
Wait a minute? You listen to the Podcast Answer Man? Of course I do – and you should too. No one show or blog is an island for all the answers. Cliff Ravenscraft has been at it for a couple of years and has built up some solid street cred.
The Smart Passive Income Podcast
I just started listening to Pat Flynn’s podcast about 6 weeks ago. The kid knows what he’s talking about (I can say kid because the kid’s almost half my age). He gets niche marketing and he’s very generous with his content.
Sound on Sound Magazine
I’ve read Sound on Sound magazine for years. When I heard they had a monthly podcast a couple of years ago, I was thrilled. A prime source of information for what’s new in electronics and audio.
The Western Star Records Psychobilly Podcast
Alan Wilson, former guitarist from The Sharks own the Western Star Records label out of the UK. A brilliant move on his part to start a podcast and feature his label’s music on it. There’s also a sister podcast for rockabilly. The only downside, as of late they only publish about three shows a year.
So what podcasts are you listening to?
