Ever since I started thinking about launching my blogs, I’ve been searching for answers to my potential blogging questions… on iTunes. I know, it might not be as straightforward a way to go as just googling things, but for me, podcasts proved to be the best way to gain organized knowledge. Now, podcasts have become an essential part of my daily routine as I listen to my favorite shows every single day. Today, I share with you the list of my favorite podcasts—ones that help me grow as a blogger.
Industry Insight Podcasts for Influencers
When I started this blog in 2015, “blogging” was a buzzword. Everyone wanted to be the next Emily Schuman or Garance Dore. These days, every social media platform, whether it’s YouTube or Instagram has its own social media celebs. The influencer industry grows so quickly that it’s challenging to constantly be on top of the latest trends. Industry insight podcasts are one of the first to report on the “latest and greatest” so these are crucial to keep on your radar if you are taking your social media job seriously.
If you are struggling with pitching your blogging or social media platform, there is no better expert to seek advice from than Julie Solomon. This Boss Babe and PR superstar provides in-depth information on how to survive and thrive as an influencer.

This podcast is an audio version of Fohr’s YouTube show where agency’s Co-Founder James Nord shares his insider tips on the influencer industry. Fohr is one of the leading influencer agencies that work with major social media names, as well as with micro-influencers.

Inspirational and How-To Podcasts for Bloggers
If you are just starting in blogging and social media, it might seem that the industry is very new. In some respect, that’s right: social media trends and technology changes weekly if not daily. But some of the most established bloggers have been in this industry for more than 10 years. Those people know the blogging industry from its genesis and continue killing it in until this day. The three podcasts I list below are my absolute favorite because they continue staying relevant and inspiring up-and-coming blogger to go bigger and do better in the industry.
Even though it does not directly relate to fashion, there’s no better podcast you can find for social media, marketing, and blogging tips. The format of the podcast is an interview, where Pat consults the industry experts or shares his readers’ success stories. All the stories are very helpful and super inspirational. For real, it’s a must!
I was super excited when Darren launched his podcast earlier this year, as I’ve followed his work for many years. In fact, his book was the main reason I started my blog. I love listening to Darren’s voice as he always provides real-life advice that you can actually use.
