To get the latest updates in digital marketing, most people subscribe to emails, social media pages, and blogs. Sorting through emails and sites for marketing updates, however, can be tiring. There’s also so much noise from media outlets these days that it’s often difficult to determine which ones are real and which ones are just hype.
There’s also an excellent supplement to all these, one that will help you save time: podcasts. Podcasts free us from the dilemma of wanting marketing lessons but not having enough time to read, much less to find something worth reading. This is why people buy Soundcloud followers to boost their reputation.
There are thousands of podcasts on SoundCloud, iTunes, Google Play, and other platforms. Some of them, thankfully, are dedicated to digital marketing. We compiled a list of digital marketing podcasts that will help keep you updated with the latest news and knowledge on digital marketing.
- Seeking Wisdom by Drift
Drift CEO David Cancel shares the knowledge he gained from over 20 years of building startup companies through the Seeking Wisdom podcast that’s hosted by Dave Gerhardt. Since May 2016, the podcast had tackled different topics, from sales and marketing to leadership principles and life-changing books.
Because of the demands of its listeners, the podcast was relaunched to become part of Drift. For 15 to 20 minutes each week, David shares his experiences and the process of starting Drift. The podcast can be heard on SoundCloud, iTunes, and Stitcher.

Digital marketing guru Neil Patel and Single Grain’s Eric Siu host the Marketing School podcast, and they definitely know how to make a great podcast. Like other podcasters, Patel and Siu share tips and actionable lessons in making a business successful.
What makes them unique though is that they do it only within three to 10 minutes, compared to the usual run-time of 20 to 60 minutes. The podcast airs daily on YouTube, Google Play, SoundCloud, iTunes, Stitcher, and Spotify.
