I regularly make reference on Twitter to the various Podcasts and Audio Shows that provide me with interesting listening on long car journeys or when I’m out walking. It’s amazing how much you can learn by regularly listening to Podcasts, which I find entertaining and inspiring in equal measure.
As I often get asked for recommendations for Podcast listening from the owners of IT businesses, here is a list of my recommended Podcasts for IT business owners. I’ll try to keep this list updated in the future.
- Duct Tape Marketing Podcast – Successful author John Jantsch provides a regular Podcast where he interviews noted business owners and writers. Like all the Duct Tape Marketing resources, well worth checking out.
- The 5am Miracle – Dedicated to “dominating your day before Breakfast”, host Jeff Sanders offers up infectious energy and ideas that will help you achieve more.
- Beyond The To-Do List – Host Erik Fisher talks with people on all aspects of productivity, getting good work done and living a good life. Consistently my favourite (and most inspiring) listen.
- Guardian Tech Weekly Podcast – Alek Krotoski and Guardian Technology Editor Charles Arthur talking tech, with all the latest news and some of the best round-up’s and interviews you’ll hear.
- The Human Business Way Radio Show – Blogger Chris Brogan provides a mix of interviews and informative advice dedicated to entertaining you while also teaching you a thing or two about doing business in a much more relationship-minded way.
