There are so many podcasts out there that it’s hard to decide what to listen to. ‘Professor’ Goetsch asked podcasters which episodes of their own or other podcasts they’d recommend to someone who was new to podcasting. Here are the results of that survey.

â€œIf I had to choose any podcast from DJAJ it would have to be Episode 42: â€˜What is the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything?â€™â€œAnd I was thinking if I had to chose one more from any other podcast I would have to say episode 52 from the binary star cast.â€
Wow, I have been asked some tough questions but this is up there! I cannot decide….maybe you as a listener would be better at this than me!
Depending on your contacts I would choose the following..not sure if this is right but gone for topics that general in nature.
Show 35 – Seth Godin interview – think this is good for general business people
Show 46 – Mark Sanborn on Customer Service – another good general one, on a subject that most people can connect with.
Show 52 Mitch Joel on Personal Branding – again a show that would be applicable to all
My issue is that there is a special place in my heart for each one I produce.
The one that I still get the most downloads and comments on is MTG #2, Origins and Self Brands:
For a first-time listener who may know nothing about the child-free, I’d suggest the two episode interview with Jerry S, the non-father of No Kidding!
TASCF-Ep12-NoKidding Pt 1

TASCF-Ep13-Jerry Part 2

I don’t yet have my podcast out really. Well, episode 0 has been released, and we’re recording the next few later this week. So for now, I don’t have anything of my own to recommend.
Here is a non-technical show I did that was kind of fun: The First Anniversary Show.
I think for a â€œnewbieâ€ show #14, â€œWhat Makes a Good Podcast?â€ might be educational and entertaining.
One of my favorite episodes of my show, Shrink Rap Radio, is #50. Noted author and workshop leader, Bill O’Hanlon is interviwed about the work of Milton Erickson, as well as his own Solution-Oriented Therapy.
I think I’d have to pick Show #35: Podcasting is NOT about technology.
For me, I like the interview with Ken Auletta.
I like others from other podcasters as well, but itâ€™s tough to say which episodes in particular. So many people want a quick answer to these types of questions. But real knowledge is not easily conveyed in a soundbite. Which is why FIR is hefty but good.
Greg Galant of the Venture Voice podcast picked his interview with John Bogle of the Vanguard Group for his favorite episode.
Tough call! Well, DSSP 62 and DSSP 69 are pretty representative, with nice segment length and good listener feedback. I frequently refer to Donna Papacosta’s podcast on the three most important letters in podcasting (Y-O-U) in my seminars, so that might be a good one to pass on as well!
Episode #55 – A CEO Roundtable recorded live in Utrecht (over 3,000 downloads)
I guess my choice would be BCR 5, â€œHow to communicate to the four main personality types.â€
Favourite other: Trafcom News Show 38: â€œCreating compelling newsletters.â€
For favorites from my own show, Sonitotum, I’d recommend Episode Two: A Grief Delayed.It’s a very personal one, and really hits what I want Sonitotum to be, which is a conversation between me and my closest anonymous friend.
Faves from other people’s shows? Holy moley. There haven’t been any in recent memory that really leap out at me, but of the many shows I subscribe to, these are the ones I actually actively listen to:
Hope that helps..!
Thanks for asking, too!
This is one of my faves: SPOS #26â€”Bernard Goldbach from Ireland.
Here are some others that I’ve enjoyed!
I’ll suggest our most popular one: The careers in communications episode. (It even features a comment from â€˜Professorâ€™ Goetsch!)
My personal favorite was iLifeZone Episode #7 – The Tip Monster Show.
For folks just learning about podcasting from a business perspective, I would start from the startâ€”Episode #1, Business Podcasting and the Big Question. Episode #2 frames the business argument for podcasting nicely as well.
It would depend on the interests of the listener.
For a totally general audience, someone who’s not necessarily very outdoorsy:
#42 & 43, A Wild Bird Chase
For someone who does get into the outdoors (or likes to imagine that they do):
#32, Mountain Rescuers:
(This remains my all-time favorite.)
And for the environmentalist:
#19: Restoring a Park Gone to Pot
Thank you for the idea. I think it’s such a good idea for promoting podcasts!
This is new podcast about Japanese culture and language.
Hope you enjoy it!!
December 20, “Oishi is delicious!”
