Vancouver's smartest 22 business and tech podcasts in 2022
What do they have in common? We promise you'll be smarter after you've listened to them.
Good afternoon! Welcome to this week’s Midweek Memo, brought to you by Boast. Today, we’re focusing on podcasts.
Podcasting has never been bigger. Globally, it’s a $9.28 billion (USD) industry that’s expected to grow nearly 30 percent over the next seven years. Locally, Vancouver’s pod-economy may not be worth that much, but with studios like JAR Audio and Pacific Content, you might say the city has garnered a reputation for talent in the audio storytelling format.
What Vancouver-produced podcasts exist? A lot. How many of them focus on this publication’s primary concern, the culture and technology of business? And which ones should you actually listen to? We’ve done the research so you don’t have to, and we’ve settled on our top 22 shows.
Of course, we’ve no doubt missed many, and some of you will be eager to point this out. That’s what our comment section is for. In any case, we hope you enjoy listening to these shows as much as we enjoyed discovering them.
