Hear hear! Great podcasts every manager should listen

2016 might be the year of podcasts. These digital audio files have been around for a decade, but I've noticed that recently they have become increasingly popular. For example in our Executive MBA's Web For Executives module, students found them really inspiring. And why not, podcasts come with many benefits:
  • For starters, podcasts provide in-depth conversational content as opposed to brief status updates and tweets. They are an essential source of rich digital content (in addition to blogs and video) 
  • Podcasts are highly ergonomic to consume. This is not a minor matter in this time of endless screen staring in highly unergonomic postures.  
  • You can use podcasts to fill your otherwise useless spare time.
    Been on a business trip lately?
The following presents some podcasts that I highly recommend for any manager to listen. I subscribe and listen to them with my iPad's podcast app but naturally other services will do. Below are just a few of my favorites. Feel free to share your favorites in the comment box.
