5 music business podcasts you can’t live without

Published: August 14, 2018

Use your commute or workout to become a smarter music marketer.

Had enough Cardi B on the car radio? Tired of Trump-talk on the news? Sick of hearing Rupert Holmes’ “Escape” on Sirius XM’s Yacht Rock station?

I am. So for the past few months I’ve been diving back into music business and songwriting podcasts when I’m driving or jogging.

Okay, sure. I CAN live without them. They’re podcasts, not peanut butter cookies. But they’ve been great motivators.

If you want music marketing education, creative inspiration, or a shoulder to cry on, check out:

1. The DIY Musician Podcast

Playing favorites here (since I’m the occasional co-host of this CD Baby podcast), but we have over 200 episodes where we discuss a wide range of do-it-yourself strategies for building and sustaining a music career.

2. The Music Industry Blueprint

Rick Barker, former manger of Taylor Swift, delivers weekly podcasts about entrepreneurial mindset, details about music management, and building a brand.

3. Creative Juice

This podcast goes deep in the weeds (in a good way) on direct marketing and Facebook advertising.

4. The Six Minute Music Business Podcast

Exactly what it sounds like! Six minute episodes about various aspects of the music business, delivered by Wade Sutton of Rocket to the Stars.

5. Song Exploder

Dissect the creative process and hear how a song comes together. This is cool step-by-step look at songwriting and music production across multiple genres.


Special mention for Joe Pug’s The Working Songwriter podcast, where he talks shop with Americana, folk, country, pop, and rock songwriters.
