Just yesterday, a group of Montrealers launched a new Podcast — We Are Geek. You can find it here (in French only). For this first edition, they shared their thoughts about this city. I found it interesting and I’ll continue following it to see where it goes, you should check it out.
I thought I’d share with you a list of Podcasts I’m subscribed to. I find them all extremely stimulating! I get ideas on how to better my work and personal life almost every time! From my descriptions, the Podcasts might sound redundant. Each person, however, brings his or her view to the table and they sometimes differ quite a bit…and I think that it’s precisely that which makes these interesting.
For Immediate Release (FIR)
The FIR Podcast is actually a few different recordings. The main one is the weekly Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz Report, but all the elements are extremely interesting. They do a great job covering new topics and trends in social media as well as best practices. The conversations are always insightful.
If you’re looking beyond the basics of social media – definitely check this out!
Currently these are recordings of conversations between Joseph Jaffe and Mitch Joel. They cover the current status of media and social media as well as their thoughts on future trends. These guys are smart and there is plenty of thought provoking ideas in here!
Jaffe Juice TV
This is a video Podcast by Joseph Jaffe. They are short (a few minutes only) and insightful. It’s a collection of his thoughts regarding trends, best practices, social media, advertising and business. Just passed the 100th Podcast – congratulations!
Managing the Gray
Podcast hosted by C.C. Chapman with tips, thoughts and advice — self-help style. C.C. is a very smart guy with some really great advice on topics such as goal setting and making time. You’ll find tons of useful info here.
Marketing Over Coffee
John Wall and Christopher Penn talk about marketing, social media, business as well as a couple interviews. The conversations are often very practical. There’s some good stuff in there – these two are very smart and know their stuff!
Six Pixels of Separation/Media Hacks
This is actually two Podcasts rolled into one and dare I say – it’s my favourite. Hosted by Mitch Joel of Twist Image, Six Pixels of Separation is usually an interview with a big shot in the social media and marketing world. Mitch is a great interviewer and the insights gained from this Podcast are phenomenal! It’s also a copy of the Jaffe Juice Podcast when their discussions go live.
Media Hacks is a bi-monthly talk that covers one or more trend in the social media, marketing and tech industry. Mitch Joel and some of his regular contributors — Julien Smith, C.C. Chapman, Chris Brogan, Christopher Penn and Hugh McGuire go back and forth in a somewhat organized way and with varying degrees of swearing :) It’s always thought provoking!
Without taking anything away from the others, I strongly recommend this one!
Wine Library TV
Wine Podcast by Gary Vaynerchuk – it got me interested in wine and it showcases Gary doing what he does best! What more is there to say :)
I don’t know if my descriptions above really give any of these great Podcasts any justice, so I’ll suggest this — go listen to them, see what you think…
What other interesting Podcasts do you listen to — social media related or not?
