Let’s talk about our favorite podcasts: HigherEd social

It seems that everyone has a podcast these days and that there’s a podcast out there for everyone. Whether you’re a fan of true crime, celebrity culture or science, there’s a podcast out there to suit you. From getting hooked on Serial to never missing an episode of Desert Island Disks, It’s fair to say we’re podcast enthusiasts. We’ve never really talked podcasts on the TERMINALFOUR blog and it’s about time we make it more of a regular fixture.

One of the main reasons we love podcasts is that pretty much anyone can start a podcast. You don’t have to be an Ira Glass or a Sarah Koenig to get one off the ground. If you’ve got an honest voice and an interesting perspective – you’ll find your audience.

We also love it when someone recommends a podcast to us that has escaped our radar so with this in mind we thought we would recommend one of our favorite higher education podcasts for marketers! (Likewise, readers, if you’ve got a great recommendation for a must-listen podcast, do send it our way.)
