13 Digital Marketing Podcasts You Must Subscribe To

13 Digital Marketing Podcasts You Must Subscribe To

Since first launching in the mid-noughties, podcasts have become an integral part of the online landscape. Today, a reported 44% of the US population have listened to a podcast – with 80% tuning in to all or most of each podcast episode.

That’s pretty amazing, averaging out to about seven shows per week!

For marketers and advertisers, podcasts are a great method for staying abreast of all the important news and updates taking place within the digital marketing space.

Podcasts have truly granted many of us sweet serenity from the chaos of littered inboxes, busy media outlets, and not enough time in the day to stay on top of it all. With the freedom to listen instead of actively reading, these sound-based marketing lessons have become influential in how we learn.

But with every popular channel comes options, making it hard to decide what’s worth subscribing to.

To save you the hard work, I researched, tuned in, and mulled over the ratings of dozens of podcasts to create a list of the best digital marketing podcasts. Because, as a marketer, every minute you could be learning something new counts.

1. Marketing Scoop by SEMrush

The Marketing Scoop podcast started back in August of 2017 as a way for the SEMrush team to turn its comprehensive digest of information about the search world into an easier format for audiences to catch up on the latest digital marketing news.

In its first season alone, the show included recognized industry experts like Barry Schwartz, Larry Kim, Aleyda Solis, Jim Banks and many more. But after outgrowing an SEO/PPC only focused perspective, season two has marked a new frontier for the Marketing Scoop podcast, covering everything from news, trends, and in-depth discussions on SEO, Advertising, Content Marketing, and Success Stories.

2. Seeking Wisdom by Drift

Introduced in May of 2016, the Seeking Wisdom podcast was created by Drift to dig into CEO David Cancel’s wealth of knowledge from his 20+ years building startups. Every episode, host Dave Gerhardt grabs a coffee with David for 15-20 minutes to discuss leadership principles, books that have changed their personal and professional outlook, and meet with the best of the best across sales, marketing, product, growth and more. But only a handful of episodes in, audiences were hungry for more tactical content. This led the two to switch gears and re-launch Seeking Wisdom as part of Drift, sharing everything about the process of building Drift each week. Tune in if you want to learn from their experiences.
