Our Podcast Recommendations

We asked you last week if you’d like to hear our recommendations for podcasts that are worth a listen. The result was an obvious yes, so here’s our fave five. We’ve chosen a small list, each one a manageable length (we know you’re busy!) with a relevance to our industry.

We hope you enjoy! Let us know what you think!

  1. Beatles City
    This is great for those with a love of the Beatles! Liverpool Echo has created this series of podcasts which aims to tell “the story of the band that shook the world from the place where it all began.”
    At only 30 minutes, this is a great short listen:

  2. Humans of Hospitality
    This is great for those in the hospitality industry that are currently not working due to covid19. A great, feel good podcast that celebrates and shares the stories of hospitality heroes throughout the world:
    https://open.spotify.com/show/6XQrOfcOsTrsm0bQME0QJ9
  3. Social Minds
    We particularly love the ‘social in six’ segment from Social Minds – a concise and easy to listen to round up of the newest updates across all social platforms:
    https://open.spotify.com/show/1fSUH9oxW5ISS9BVQES6tl
  4. Advertising is Dead
    A really interesting listen, discussing the changes and developments in advertising. From social media strategy to how to communicate effectively, this is worth a listen, although some episodes are an hour or more, so check out the run times before you go:
    https://open.spotify.com/show/5SmETmi443hNielAmsElNG
  5. Covid-19: Business in Focus
    Here industry experts discuss the latest developments in business and share practical advice on how to remain resilient. These are bitesize podcasts at no more than 20 minutes each – perfect for a brew and a biscuit!
