For World Podcast Day, we’ve decided to compile a list of our top binge-worthy podcasts that we’ve been listening to this year and celebrate our favourite podcasters.
Since lockdown has sparked the daily walking ritual and for some of us, podcasts have been our go-to companions. We’ve put together our recommendations podcasts to nourish your brain, whether you’re ready to explore the mighty marketing world, deep dive into design, or learn about something in between, here are 8 of our top picks:
This is the podcast that helps marketers understand why we choose what we choose, why we think what we think, and how to exploit this stuff for fun and commercial gain. Each 15-20 minute episode dives in to one of the many psychological heuristics that causes us to consistently make “sub-optimal”.
We’re all trying to keep our heads above water when it comes to the ever-changing marketing world, so these weekly quick-fire episodes will help you do just that. This podcast is exactly what it says it is – a complete run-down on everything that’s going on in the world of marketing and technology that’ll be over and done with by the time you’ve made and enjoyed your coffee.
This is the one for all the creative minds there! Hosted by content legend Jay Acunzo (who has worked with companies that we’re quite familiar with: Google, ESPN, and more) ‘The Unthinkable’ dives into what it takes to create work that resonates. In a world of marketers addicted to quick-wins and no-brainer hacks, Jay’s the sore thumb who pauses to consider the bigger picture.
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned designer, it’s hard to find a better-rounded podcast than this. A fantastic mix of interesting guests, fresh ideas and practical advice makes this podcast one of the most helpful resources for all design professionals.
Hosted by graphic design and branding educator Chris Do, the podcast explores the topics of design, technology, marketing and business and how they overlap, with the goal of changing the way you think by looking at all of these together as a bigger picture.
From the creator of Sharesies, this podcast gives you access to CEOs, share market experts and other key players in the finance world. You’ll hear what the future holds for companies and deep dives on the state of the economy (mostly in NZ). This is a great addition to your headphones.
This podcast talks about the unseeable forces that control human behaviour and shape our ideas, beliefs, and assumptions. Invisibilia—Latin for invisible things—fuses narrative storytelling with science that will make you see your own life differently.
This keeps things a little lighter and can be enjoyed when you need a well-deserved brain break. Have you ever seen a movie so bad that it’s amazing? Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael and Jason Mantzoukas and an array of different guests get together and discuss the features and mockingly deconstruct the most outlandish movies.
