Podcasts are the new craze right now. And the surprising part about this is that there is nothing new about them; podcasts are not a new 21st-century concept. Podcasting or audio blogging can be traced back to the early 80s. But with the dotcom boom and with the introduction of the iPad in 2004, the podcasting business, which was facing a slowdown, got a new life, and now there are more than 115,000 English-speaking podcasts available in the market, with the number growing rapidly every day.
With over 67 million daily listeners with a huge section of budding entrepreneurs and marketers tuning in daily, here are some of the best podcasts that every content marketer should tune into.
