Who doesn’t love a good business podcast? They’re all the good bits of a radio show wrapped into a bite-sized nugget – perfect for turning a boring commute into something you can claim is vaguely productive.
Maybe the World Cup has got us all patriotic, but in the very US-centric world of podcasting, we figured it was time to showcase what we Brits have to offer in terms of podcasts.
So please, grab a jolly good cup of tea, maybe a Hobnob if you’re feeling particularly devilish, and form an orderly queue as we celebrate our best of British business podcasts…
Internet Marketing Podcast
No prizes for guessing what this one’s about. It’s the UK’s leading internet marketing podcast with over half a million downloads. Each 30-minutes-ish episode interviews a leader in the field who gives tips, insights and practical advice on the mercurial world of online marketing.

The Disruptive Entrepreneur
Rob Moore has any number of accolades under his belt. From three Guinness World Records to best-selling books to a multi-million pound property portfolio. And he wants you to be different.
At the heart of his ‘disruptive entrepreneurship’ lies the need to constantly challenge what you see and do, to move away from the bland and boring, and towards the need shake things up.
Episodes vary between interviews, personal rants and motivational speaking-type lessons. His style is a bit like that other British favourite, Marmite, but it’s consistently rated the UK’s number 1 business podcast, so you might enjoy him with some tea and toast too.
