Talk about making a comeback; it seems like podcasts have made a resurgence. Maybe people are just more interested in listening to some great internet radio or, if you’re like me, something about the exercise of listening is sort of therapeutic. Either way I’m really happy with how successful the industry has become for so many creatives and entrepreneurs to expand their own brands and initiatives. So without further delay, I’m going to list my top 5 favorite podcast shows for entrepreneurs and creatives. I hope that you guys enjoy them as much as I do.
Design Matters with Debbie Millman
Once you land on the website for Design Matters with Debbie Millman, you realize instantly that you have landed in the gates of designer heaven. This show is the world’s first podcast dedicated to design and also dives deep into the world of creative culture through conversation with designers, writers, artists, curators, musicians and more. To date there are 257 published episodes. As a reviewer on iTunes said, “It’s a great podcast, if you are interested in everything and nothing.” To listen you have 3 options, so check out Design Matters here.
Profit. Power. Pursuit. A CreativeLive Podcast with Tara Gentile
If you want to get inside businesses that inspire you then this is the podcast for you. This podcast is all about building a business, especially for creatives. This show is hosted by Tara Gentile, who is a business strategist and author of Quiet Power Strategy. I love this podcast because it has helped me as a creative to figure out exactly what I need to do. I strongly recommend creatives and entrepreneurs to subscribe, here.
The Freelancer with Paul Jarvis
This guy Paul Jarvis is simply amazing. In his own words, “Paul Jarvis is a designer & writer who spends his time at the intersection of creativity & commerce.” He has accomplished many other things such as writing for big brands like Fast Company, Newsweek, Forbes, LifeHacker and BuzzFeed. But he has something that I like to listen to and it’s The Freelancer, a podcast which is a solo show that he hosts once a week. On the show Paul shares his thoughts and experiences on running a freelance business and he usually keeps it short and sweet. This is a great show if you have a short commute.
