Public Relations Podcasts

As much as I love social media, I've never gotten into listening to podcasts. In fact, it was only last month that I listened to my first podcast. I'm still trying to get the hang of it, but I know that many PR professionals swear by podcasts to keep up with the latest industry news.

Barbara Nixon, a professor at Georgia Southern University who I admire and follow on Twitter asked her PR class to listen to a PR or social media podcast, and to blog about what they got out of it.

She left her class with a list of suggested podcasts.

With Barbara's recommendations, I decided to listen to a bit of Inside PR Podcast. I really enjoyed my experience, and am definitely considering checking out some more of Barbara's recommendations.

So, now I ask you: What's your favorite PR or social media podcast? What do you get out of listening to them?

Thanks so much for the kind words.

Of all the podcasts I listen to, two stand out at the ones that I NEVER miss: For Immediate Release and Inside PR. They both help me keep up to speed on what's going on the world of PR. Without learning from them, I think I'd be doing my students a real disservice.
