Sharing a couple of my favourite podcasts for marketers in order to ease your commute while getting smarter.

The focus of the podcast is mostly on hands-on operational topics with operations managers, VP’s of growth or rogue marketers leading business growth for some of the hottest brands & startups. Over the years people from Uber, Growth Tribe, The Family, N26, Buffer, Segment, Drift, Intercom, Madkudu, Lime & LeWagon have shared their tips & tricks on the show. A very hands-on podcast with immediately implementable operational tips.
2. Fixed That For You
Segment recently started to podcast. Their podcast looks at problems & challenges that are being solved using data & algorithms. Even though the problems are often times complex, the podcast focuses on the logic behind the problem solving rather than the technical aspect. An inspiring podcast that gives you a peek in the mind of people trying to solve surprising challenges. Segment’s Fixed That For You tackles such as preventing stampedes, dating & writing the perfect novel are being tackled.
