Already tired of hearing holiday music? Good news! There’s plenty of outstanding podcast content out there for community managers to dive into! Check out these recommendations, and have something ready to take notes on, because you’re going to want to incorporate the great advice and strategic suggestions into your own community goals for 2020:

Community Pulse

Conversations with Bacon

Conversations with Community Managers

Their podcast focuses on interviewing one community professional, per show, and getting a better understanding of that person’s role, goals, and day-to-day responsibilities. Each episode is around 20 minutes, which makes for some quick and easy listening. 

 

 

 

Get Together

They’re interviewing community managers across many industries and platforms to take a deep dive into how their communities got started.

One of the latest podcasts in the Community space that's got some great content is In Before the Lock.

Has anyone found other new ones recently?

Thank you @JacobBo and @PhilippeM  for adding those! So many great community podcasts have come out since I originally posted this! In addition to the ones you posted, here's a few more I've found:

Couple more worth a listen:

  • Cohere from Bill Johnston who is doing great work for the Community industry
  • This is loose but about building a network, so definitely relevant: Build Your Dream Network
