A starting point for amateur podcast listeners

Every entrepreneur craves new strategies and skills to maximize their business growth. But finding time to read a book or attend a seminar can be difficult while also trying to balance business and family. This is where podcasts can come in extremely handy.

Podcasts have been around for a while, but their popularity is trending upward in the entrepreneurial community now. In essence, a podcast is an audio series much like a vlog or newspaper column, where hosts discuss topics around a central theme, sometimes interviewing experts during the episodes. All one needs to do is listen.

There are now over 800,000 podcasts regularly releasing episodes, with the number increasing due to listeners’ voracious appetites and the growing popularity of the podcast as a new form of content marketing.
