The Best Podcast Episodes February 2017 (…or at least last week)

Here are the best podcast episodes of February 2017.

Tim Grahl continues to share everything he knows about launching a book. I really liked his take on social media. One thing I’m trying is not being on social media. Let’s see how that turns out.

A new podcast on the list this week was Learn to Code With Me. Last year I spent months learning HTML/CSS and some JavaScript on Treehouse. Slowly I drifted over to self-publishing, but after listening to an episode of Too Embarrassed to Ask on coding, I’m drifting back.

The Read to Lead podcast continues to be one of my favorites. Any podcast that talks about nonfiction books with authors will always be a favorite.

Recode continues to earn more and more of my listening time as I deep dive into their back catalog of Recode Media and Too Embarrassed to Ask.

My latest discovery is Startup. It is amazing. Finally, someone talks about the fear, anxiety and drama of trying to start a business.

I was part of a startup for a couple of years and everything covered in Startup has been spot on.

Here are the best podcast episodes I heard:

Book Launch Show

Social Media and Book Launches

Finally, someone who says we don’t have to be everywhere if we want to leverage social media.

Too Embarrassed to Ask

Do I really need to learn to code?

Long answer, probably. Short answer, yes.

Do ‘productivity hacks’ really help you get stuff done?

Best advice they gave was get up early and if you have problem Google it for solutions.

The best podcasts right now, according to Kara Swisher and Lauren Goode

They turned me on to Startup. I will forever be in their debt.

We can’t talk about ‘fake news’ if we can’t agree what it means

What was the saying, everybody is entitled to their own opinion, not their own facts.

What were the most interesting gadgets at CES?

Wearables? Heels that raise or lower? At what point do we hit peak CES?

Is ‘unlimited’ phone data a ripoff?

What could have been most boring podcast of the year was quite informative and lively thanks to Joanna Stern. Good stuff to hear if in the market for a new phone.

Why isn’t my favorite TV show on Netflix?

Can we just get to the point where everything every produced is a search away? No. OK, here is what to do until that day comes.

Conclusion

So there you go, the best podcasts episodes I heard in February 2017. Hopefully at least one caught your attention and you’ll give it a chance.

Not sure exactly how the format of this post will change in the future. I do know I’ll keep listening to podcasts and sharing everything I hear.
