PODCAST RECOMMENDATIONS FOR COMMS PROS

By Kevin Sullivan

I was recently asked by my longtime friend and colleague Joe Favorito to be a guest on the Columbia University Sports Podcast (CUSP).  As we prepared for the conversation, it occurred to me that amid the podcast boom, there are few podcasts specifically devoted to the practice of strategic communications and public relations. 

As an enthusiastic consumer of podcasts, I scrolled through my subscriptions and went in search of worthwhile new additions to compile the following list of recommended pods for communications pros.  

The list is populated by programs on media, tech, leadership and narrative storytelling – all of which help keep us current while providing useful insights and even professional development to help us communicators in our roles as trusted advisors.
