Podcasts are appealing due to their on demand convenience of curated content that is typically binge worthy and people tend to listen while driving, exercising or doing almost anything.
In the B2B world, podcasts have been a very effective way for companies to share their expertise, along with having the ability to bring on expert guests to give their views and share their knowledge with listeners. Building brand awareness and establishing thought leadership are two main pieces that podcasts can help bring to its listeners.
