Are you a content marketer?
Do you like podcasts?
If you answered “Yes” to both those questions, then boy oh boy, is this the list for you.
Now, this isn’t new for us. We’ve written about some of the best digital marketing podcasts in the past. And we still love those podcasts!
But today we’re going to zoom in on the content marketing side of things. Because there are some amazing podcasts out there that are specifically geared toward helping marketers like you to create better content, reach a wider audience, and turn more of your readers into customers.
And in this post, we’ll share them with you.
So here they are: the 17 best podcasts of all time for content marketers.
1: Copyblogger FM
Without a doubt, Copyblogger is one of the most authoritative authorities there is when it comes to copywriting and content marketing. And their podcast, Copyblogger FM, is chock full of copy and content goodness—especially since you’ll get the chance to learn from established content pros like Brian Clark, Darrell Vesterfelt, and Sonia Simone. This podcast is a particularly good choice for writers who want step-by-step help on writing better headlines, subject lines, calls to action, and more.

3: The DigitalMarketer Podcast
Our second foray into podcasting, The DigitalMarketer Podcast, has been a hit from day one. And the fact that it’s hosted by Garrett Holmes and Jenna Snavely, two of the best in the biz, makes it a particularly good choice for anyone interested in learning how to grow your company’s traffic and sales through consistent and strategic content marketing (you’ll also get the inside scoop from many of our other team members, so check this one out if you want to go behind-the-scenes at how we do things here at DM).

4: Content Jam
In terms of publishing frequency, the shows on this list run the gamut. Some podcasters, like Gary Vaynerchuk and Neil Patel, publish a new show every single day. But Content Jam takes the opposite approach. Hosts Andy Crestodina and Barry Feldman may wait months in between shows, but when they do produce a new episode, you can bet it’ll be a good one. Topics range from storytelling to SEO to promotion strategies, all with a focus on how they affect content marketing.

9: Content, Inc.
Tight on time? Content, Inc. might be the podcast for you. Each episode runs around 10 minutes, and many are 5 minutes or less. Even better, it’s hosted by Joe Pulizzi, founder of the Content Marketing Institute. You’ll learn about the models that entrepreneurs in many different markets are using to create effective content that grows their business. Content, Inc. is no longer produced, but the episodes are still available and very much worth your time (and if you want more, you can catch Joe on his new podcast, PNR with This Old Marketing).

10: The Blogging Millionaire Podcast
The tagline on The Blogging Millionaire’s website reads: “Create Better Content, Build Your Traffic, & Make More Money.” That just about sums it up, doesn’t it?

Our first foray into the podcasting world, Perpetual Traffic is still running strong.

The subtitle for Content Warfare is: “Find Your Audience, Tell Your Story and Win the Battle for Attention Online.” Now, if that isn’t a topic that’s vital for any content marketer to master, we don’t know what is.
