You’re looking for the best digital marketing and SEO podcasts on the Internet. You’re a huge or at least curious consumer of podcasts.
And you’ve probably figured by now that almost all marketing / SEO podcasts are terrible. They either –
- Provide zero information at best or wrong information at worst
- Are a straight up sales funnel tool for a scammy agency
- Quit after a few episodes – so they don’t have any back catalog
And to make matters worse – the search engines in your podcast app of choice are about as good as Altavista circa 1999. And – nearly every list like this online just copies the most popular in any given category. I want to fix that with this post.
With that in mind, here’s my list of best digital marketing & SEO podcasts – in no particular order – that are all worth listening to.
*Aside on links – I linked out to the obligatory iTunes and website URLs. But I also included links to Overcast and Pocket Casts – the best iOS and Android podcast apps.
These guys come from the “make money online” side of Internet marketing. But they are also super-smart, self-aware, and very creative. If you want a gold-mine of tactics you can apply, then give them a listen.

Experts On The Wire
Dan Shure has been one of the best SEOs in the industry for as long as I’ve been doing SEO. He’s smart, savvy and has always practiced sustainable search engine optimization. He does an only-SEO interview podcast with some of the most respected, most creative people in the industry.
Search Engine Nerds
Search Engine Journal is one of the most respected and most established search publications on the Internet. This show is a bi-weekly review of SEO news, tactics and happenings. Good for keeping up with industry news.
Shameless plug alert. I co-host this podcast with Brett Snyder of Knucklepuck Media. It is the intermediate / advanced SEO podcast that I wish had existed when I was learning and coming up in the industry. We have a wide range of episode types, but try to keep every topic accessible and useful.
Art of Paid Traffic
When I need to know what is happening in the world of paid marketing – this is the podcast I go to. It’s wide-ranging, informative and well put together.

I’m generally a begrudging recommender of Neil Patel’s work, but this podcast that he does with Eric Siu is very accessible, fast, and tactical.
Science of Social Media
I generally don’t pay attention to a ton of social media best practices, since it changes so fast. But – when I do, I trust Buffer to tell me what matters.

Detailed Content Marketing
This podcast is also run by Glen Allsop. It’s focused on the detailed tactics and execution of content marketing on the Internet.
This is a fairly recent podcast. They have great guests and no fluff. They do direct questions – and a lot of information applicable to all sites (not just ecommerce).
Tim Ferriss Show
This show is not about digital marketing or SEO, per se. But – if you dig through some of the “in-betweenisodes”, Q&As, and guest lists – you’ll find some of the best marketing content on the Internet.
I hope you learn something new with one of these podcasts! Happy listening!
