My Favorite Marketing Podcasts

I started my podcasts series with a tongue-in-cheek title just over 1.5 years ago.

Jargonorrhea Live!

Kathy Klotz-Guest on

The idea was to have fun with great guests where we could discuss marketing in a human way without the talking head, self-promotional, jargon-laden nonsense. In that last 18 months, we’ve had some awesome guests give great info, have fun, make us laugh and think. And that’s the point. We were also nominated for a 2013 NMX podcast award. That’s pretty cool.
Here’s to more human marketing!


Below is a roundup of some of my faves since then. Enjoy!

8. Kriti Vichare. My friend, Kriti, is also a cartoonist, an MBA and startup business owner. Her cartoons chronicle entrepreneurial life. If you can’t laugh at it, you shouldn’t be doing it!
