1. Seth Godin’s Startup school
A complete must-listen for anyone thinking about launching a business of any type. Although it’s really more a recorded seminar than a traditional podcast, this one is just so full of practical tips and mind-altering information it had to be top of the list. Get ready for tough questions and a melty brain.
“Seth Godin is a thought leader in the marketing and business world. In this rare live recording, hear Seth as he guides thirty entrepreneurs through a workshop exploring how they can build and run their dream business.”
2. Startups for the rest of us
A weekly chat between two smart guys each with their own bootstrapped startup(s). The podcast serves partially as an update on their startup journey, but for the most part it’s a weekly deep dive on a great topic like “How to plan a conference” or “How to prioritize feature requests”, it’s incredibly useful stuff. More than the rest it’s this podcast that has lead me down a slippery slope to wanting to launch a product.
“Welcome to Startups for the Rest of Us, the podcast that helps developers, designers and entrepreneurs be awesome at launching software products. Whether you’ve built your first product or are just thinking about it.”
3. Working Out
Two very down to earth presenters talking about their quest to create a passion based business. Great honest insights into the ups the downs of the process and the journey. (Also it’s good to hear a high quality non-US podcast for once)
“Join Ashley Baxter & Paddy Donnelly on a journey to figure out how to create a business doing what you love.”
4. Chasing Product
“This is Chasing Product, the podcast helping freelancers and consultants transition from client work to launching bootstrapped software products.”
5. Product people
This is the newest podcast I’ve come across in this genre, again it’s full of fantastic interviews with great product people. Justin’s interview with Des Traynor of Intercom.io is one of the best business interviews I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to: Listen to Des’s interview here
“A podcast focused on great products and the people who make them”
Happy listening folks, but don’t blame me if these things melt your mind. If you like them, hate them or something in between let me know over on twitter: @clearpreso
