    Podcasts have given traditional blog posts a run for their money, considering how they’ve become a wealth of knowledge. After all, they provide learning on the go and help you connect better with the hosts. 

    But with any learning medium, there is always much more than one can consume. Mind you, this also includes tons of mediocre content you’re better off skipping. 

    To help ensure you hit the goldmine, we’ve curated a list of the best 38 B2B marketing podcasts for you to devour. Not only that, but we’ll share what each B2B podcast has to offer, along with reviews, recommended episodes, and much more. 

    Here’s a quick look at what we’ll be covering:

    B2B Podcast Stats 

    We didn’t want to share just any randomly created list of the best B2B podcasts with you. To know the top ones, we asked 38 loyal podcast listeners about their favorites and why they prefer them over others. 

    But before we explore this list, let’s look over some interesting insights we gathered from talking to them. If your company has a podcast (or is planning to have one), these findings are ones to note.  

    Almost all of our survey respondents listen to at least one B2B podcast in a week, with nearly 40% listening to as many as three to four per week.

    But which B2B podcast topics our respondents are mainly interested in? When asked this question, 84.21% chose marketing. This is followed by sales and leadership & management, both chosen by 55.26% of survey participants each.  

    B2B podcast topics our respondents are most interested in

    How long should a podcast be to retain the attention and interests of listeners? Well, more than half of our respondents prefer listening to B2B podcasts that last between 30 minutes and 1 hour. 

    But what if the host is really passionate about the topic and crosses the 1-hour mark? Do listeners still stay tuned in or abandon the podcast? Well, 47.37% usually split it into two parts, while 21.05% listen in faster speed settings. 

    One reason why B2B marketing podcasts are so popular is how portable they are. Listen to them when you’re out for a walk while hitting the gym or while you’re doing your weekly cleaning. 

    As far as our respondents are concerned, more than 50% of them listen to podcasts while driving/commuting.

    What to expect:

    If you’re looking to grow your B2B company, this podcast is one not to miss. Each episode interviews a seasoned marketer who has shown remarkable success in driving growth for their respective company.

    While other podcasts share almost everything about a topic (which just overwhelms the listeners), Metrics & Chill focuses on a single KPI and strategies for improving it. This helps you look at solutions on a granular level, ensuring quick implementation of the tactics discussed.

What, in stark contrast, is a lot less frequent? Seeing those words in action. This podcast is different. John digs into the real-life stories behind the successes of his guests. Not the fluffy, “it wasn’t always easy, but we made it” type of so-called authenticity. This is the nitty gritty, behind-the-scenes, “what really happened” version. Real. Relatable. Educational. Enjoyable. I’m a fan.”
