Looking for great audio content about branding and brand strategy? Google “branding podcasts” and you’ll find a few lists out there (see below). And while many of these podcasts provide great background information for those of us in the branding industry, only a handful are truly about branding—many are about advertising, digital media, content strategy, graphic design, or marketing in general. And, because old podcasts seem to fizzle almost as quickly as new ones pop up, some of these lists feel out of date. A few podcasts listed haven’t published a new episode in over four years and no longer have active websites.
That’s why we’ve created a new list* of podcasts about branding, below. Did we miss anything? If you know of a podcast that’s really about branding and not already on our list, send us a note and we’ll add it in.
