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.
- 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. (Pssst…- stick around for the “secret” listener section at the end of the show!)
- Click – Sister show to the BBC Click television show hosted by Spencer Kelly, the Click Podcast looks at how technology affects our lives around the world.
- PC Pro Podcast – the PC Pro magazine team look at the latest tech and tech news stories.
- Outriders – Hosted by Jamillah Knowles, Outriders is BBC Radio 5 live’s programme dedicated to exploring the frontiers of the web. Some really interesting content you won’t hear elsewhere.
- Bob Burg Interviews – Not a Podcast as such, but author and speaker Bob Burg regularly interviews a variety of fascinating business and sales authors for his blog. I’ve yet to be disappointed listening to these quality interviews.
- CIAOPS Need to Know Podcast – My good friend and Aussie Robert Crane interviews business owners and experts from the world of SMB IT and Managed Services.
Oh, and if you’re a massive geek (as I am) then you’ll enjoy listening to the following Podcasts away from work too.
- The Art of Wrestling – Professional Wrestler Colt Cabana shares his road-trip diary and talks to some of the most interesting people in Pro-Wrestling.
- The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show – Jeff Rubin presents interviews with interesting people who have turned their obsessions into professions, as well as expert analysis on geeky things that probably don’t warrant analysing.
- Comic Book Club – A live weekly talk show about Comics books from New York City, featuring some of the best guests from the world of comic books.
And for those that asked about my Podcast client of choice, it’s currently DoggCatcher for Android.
