In 2016 I posted “Recommended Podcasts for Writers and Content Producers.” Though I’ve made some updates to my writing podcasts post over the years, it’s time to make a new post.
Of that list of 17 podcasts, six have ceased and one I stopped listening to. That means 10 have remained, some of which have rebranded. They are:
- The Creative Penn (Joanna Penn) addresses writing from the perspective of a successful indie author.
- Novel Marketing discusses novel marketing, much of which applies to nonfiction too.
- Writing Excuses is a team of accomplished writers who discuss the craft of writing.
- The Sell More Books Show with Bryan Cohen and H. Claire Taylor
- Christian Publishing Show helps Christian writers change the world.
- Self-Publishing Advice Podcast from the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi ).
- Stark Reflections on Writing and Publishing by Mark Leslie Lefebvre
- Kobo Writing Life is a podcast about writing and self publishing.
- The Writer’s Ink addresses the the business of writing.
- Six Figure Authors is the podcast that helps you take your writing career to the next level.
I’ve also added seven new podcasts too:
- Gate Crashers Podcast, with literary agent Amanda Luedeke and marketer and freelancer Charis Crowe.
- Mind Your Business for Authors, with Joe Solari
- Go Publish Yourself, an IngramSpark podcast.
- The Self-Publishing Show, with Mark Dawson and James Blatch.
- The Indy Author Podcast, with Matty Dalrymple.
- The Author Success Mastermind, with J. Thorn and Crys Cain.
- Pastor Writer, with host Chase Replogle.
That brings the total back to 17. It would seem that my podcast consumption has remained the same over the years, staying steady at 17 writing podcasts, but that’s not true.
Podcasts (at least the ones I listen to) are getting longer. It used to be that an hour long podcast was the exception; now it’s more the norm. Fortunately I now listen to them at 2x speed, so that helps. This let’s me listen to them all.
Still I go with the adage that “less is more.” For this reason, I always listen to the shorter writing podcasts first. Then I do the longer ones later.
