The analysts at our digital marketing agency provide expert insight and execution for SEO, SEM, analytics, and content marketing every day. When we’re not busy crafting new strategies to help our clients win, we’re surfing the web for fresh content to inspire us. 

As it turns out, our Augurs are curious listeners with a case of podcast fever. And not just digital marketing podcasts, either.

We surveyed our team (through a very official #slack poll) to find out which shows they’ve been tuning into lately, and the list turned out to be quite diverse.

The list we compiled reveals a selection of podcasts that dips into dozens of topics; science, technology, history, gaming, culture, and even the paranormal. Spooky.

Surprisingly, shows around culture and identity were the most popular type among our team – after some of the best digital marketing podcasts, of course.

Several Augurs recommended NPR’s How I Built This with Guy Raz, Revisionist History with Malcolm Gladwell, and the Joe Rogan Experience to be on their go-to lists.
