Best Podcasts About... Lists

Your time is valuable, and you want to use it wisely, that’s why you listen to podcasts, you don’t want to waste time on fluff and mindless nonsense. You might even be sick of social media for that very reason and are looking for communities that hold more value to help you get ahead. It's why people become MarketAPeel members, they want a deeper learning experience that challenges their higher intellect. They want to know how they can become ‘The Best’ by learning from the best – Not just the most popular with the mindless masses.

 

Did you know studies show that 3 out of 4 people listen to podcasts to learn something new? This tells me that lifelong learners and smart people listen to podcasts. What do you think?

Which Podcast Genre is Best?
 

In the US, 22% of respondents to a Statista survey about podcasts said that comedy was their favorite type of podcasts to listen to. Worldwide, the number one genre is Business. (2) How funny are you? Podcasts are a great medium for stand-up comedians to use for engaging their audiences and testing their routines. Joe Rogan did start off as a comedian before branching out as an interviewer and host to celebrities and popular thought leaders.

In 2021, the top five categories for podcasts were (1)
 

  • society & culture

  • business

  • comedy

  • health

  • news & politics.

 


Not a fan of these topics, what is the best podcasting genre to listen to?

Podcasting Magazine

The overreaching topic of the podcast matters to listeners who want to stay up to date about what is going on in their industries, learn new things, or just be entertained. Niching your podcast based on an identifiable topic, will help podcast lovers find your show and know why they want to add it to their play lists.

Why People Follow Podcasts

I asked people what they look for in a podcast to follow and listen to more episodes. I received over 30 responses, which you can read about on the UnPeeled Blog or In the APeeling Interactive Digital Magazine, the Podcasting Issue.

 

People followed podcasts because:

 

  • They learned something new

  • They have a favourite genre

  • They were interested in the content

  • They liked the Host

  • They liked the guests

  • They felt included

  • They liked the structure

 

 

Podcasting is a growing medium and better shows are produced because more people are joining the podcasting community. The younger generations have an insatiable need for content, to learn, and to be entertained. Many in our society abhorred silence and need the noise of a conversation, music, or story to fill the void. Podcasting is one medium that helps people to multi-task by learning while running errands or doing housework.

Has this happened to you?

 

You find an interesting podcast. It hits all the right things but, it only has a handful of episodes, which leaves you frustrated.

 

Being a podcaster isn’t easy. It’s a lot of work. And I don’t just mean the booking, interviewing, and editing – Trying to get people to take notice and give you a chance by listening to what you have created is time consuming and like a slow leak in a tire, can leave you feeling flat. Which is why so many podcasters quit and go onto doing something else, like social media marketing, which is less time consuming with quicker results.

 

Podcasters can’t see you. They don’t know if they are good. They throw it out there and then no one can find them because they didn’t hit any best of the best lists. The popular kids didn’t share it. And they give up. If you like a podcaster, let them know – give them a review on Apple, Podchaser, or another podcast review site. Share it on social media and tag the host. The smallest of gestures may be enough to keep them going.

List of the Best Brand Storytelling Podcasts

 

I want my podcast, BrandAPeel: Brand Storytelling in the Digital Age to be considered the best podcast about how to tell brand stories, both personal and business. That means I needed to have guests who knew their stuff and listen to other top podcasts in the genre to see what it was going to take to become the best podcast on the topic.

 

Of course, me being me, I’d decided this after interviewing 100 people so I do have episodes that touch on other genre’s to tell a larger story about how brands tell their stories and why they tell them.

 

The best thing about the brand storytelling genre is how many topics lie under the brand storytelling umbrella.

Determining the list of Top Brand Storytelling Podcast

To determine this list, I went out and Googled other lists to see which ones ended up on the radar of The best podcast listicles. I checked out reviews - and not just how many start but the reasons why people thought it was a good podcast. I also went to research sites to see what I could find and different podcast players to find their results. Unlike the other genre lists you will find on this page, brand storytelling is a small genre and has little in the way of listicles and measured results.

 

Your help to find the best and why they are the best let me know which ones should be considered and why.
