Great Podcasts for Content Marketers

Even if you don’t use audio to tell your stories, content marketers can learn a ton from the experts behind public radio, just by listening to the content they create. I’ve compiled a list of 8 of my favorite NPR podcasts (and one podcast created by an agency) that I think can teach us all more about the media, story telling, interviewing and smart content creation. What are your favorite podcasts? And Why?

BackStory with the American History Guys

BackStory is a public radio program & podcast that brings historical perspective to the events happening around us today. On each show, renowned U.S. historians Ed Ayers, Peter Onuf, and Brian Balogh tear a topic from the headlines and plumb its historical depths. Over the course of the hour, they are joined by fellow historians, people in the news, and callers interested in exploring the roots of what’s going on today. Together, they drill down to colonial times and earlier, revealing the connections (and disconnections) between past and present. With its passionate, intelligent, and irreverent approach, BackStory is fun and essential listening no matter who you are.
