Podcasts are no longer the world’s best kept secret. Did you know that podcasts have actually been around since 2004? The platform has really only blown up in the last few years as podcasts have taken their place as a cornerstone of consumed content by the mainstream.
Everyone’s got a podcast or two they love, and today we’re going to look at some of the best social media marketing podcasts you need to subscribe to in 2020.
We've handpicked the best of the best, and are only showing you podcasts directly related to social media marketing—not general digital marketing.
Let's check them out!
The Casual Fridays Podcast is an interview-style podcast hosted by Tyler Anderson, the CEO of the Casual Fridays agency. On the show, he discusses his personal experiences in social media marketing, and gives you actionable tips and tricks for your own work.

Hashtag Authentic with Sara Tasker
Sara Tasker’s show takes hands-on expertise (she’s an Instagram master) and mixes it with fun, colorful topics you might not have connected with.
