How did we come up with the list?

Just recently, I came across a post in one of the most popular Facebook Event Planning Groups, "The Delegate Wranglers". Someone was asking for recommendations of industry specific podcasts in the meetings, conference & events space.

Only three people replied and the responses weren't that helpful. Not so great...

I thought we could do better so I started curating an overview of the best podcasts in one handy article.

After listening to at least one episode from each podcast over the last couple of weeks and reading all the reviews on iTunes and Stitcher, here's the final list we came up with.

You're welcome.

1) GatherGeeks Podcast by Bizbash

The podcast is best suited for anyone involved in planning events and meetings, from conferences, trade shows, and fund-raising galas to product launches, festivals & awards.

David has a kind of hypnotic voice and you can't stop listening to him and his guests. I highly recommend this one on anyone's playlist. (Psst, Overcast is a great free, but powerful podcast player for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch).
