13 Marketing Podcasts to Add to Your Queue Today

marketing podcasts

We live in an age where you can learn a lot about almost any given industry for free online.

Take digital marketing for instance. If you were interested in learning about the industry, you could learn a ton about it online from free resources like eBooks, videos, webinars, blog posts and podcasts.

While the former examples are more common, the latter is still, in my opinion, an underrated form of content.

If you still haven’t jumped into listening to podcasts, now might be the time. They can offer a ton of valuable information in a fun way.

Here are 13 of the best marketing podcasts that you should definitely add to your queue today.
