I listen to a wide variety of podcasts, including some on product management. Here is a shortlist of my favorites.
1. The Everyday Innovator
Lessons and tips from product professionals, innovators, business owners, entrepreneurs, and others contributing to product development, management, and innovation.
Chad McAllister interviews PMs about a wide variety of topics related to product management and innovation.
The TEI website also includes a summary of the key points covered in the interview and often complete transcripts, which is really helpful for sharing with others.
Give it a listen: In Episode 83, Trend-driven innovation for product managers, Max Luthy outlines the steps to apply trend-driven innovation to product development.
2. Inside Intercom
Conversations with practitioners from the worlds of product management, design, startups and marketing.
The team at Intercom interview leaders from product management, design, marketing, and more. They also talk to others from within Intercom, which makes it very interesting to see how they are applying the lessons learned from the other experts they talk to.
Intercom also provides a summary of key takeaways from the podcast as well as a transcript of each episode on their website.
Give it a listen: In this episode, Samuel Hulick discusses building better onboarding.
3. This is Product Management
This is Product Management interviews brilliant minds across numerous disciplines that fuel modern product teams. From design to statistics, we’ve got you covered.
This podcast also follows an interview format, but where the subject interviews themself by responding to a series of pre-set questions. The web page for each episode also includes a list of highlights (with time stamps), so it’s easy to refer back to key points you want to make a note of or share.
Give it a listen: In the episode Getting Out of the Office is Product Management, Aarron Walter from InVision talks about making informed design decisions based on customer feedback.
4. Product Hunt Radio
To be fair, Product Hunt Radio covers a lot more than just product management. However, their podcasts are generally centered upon the experience of creating, scaling, and managing products, so I find a lot of value in them.
Give it a listen: Episode 87 interviews Josh Elman, who has built products at Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
